Argos appoints Nick Hamwee to head UK expansion
Argos Investment Managers has appointed former investment banker and asset manager Nick Hamwee to help build its UK business in London.
Hamwee (pictured) has a 25-year track record of building businesses including at Sanford Bernstein in New York which he joined in 1995.
Hamwee returned to the UK in 1998 to join Credit Suisse First Boston and in 2000 became co-head of CSFB's US cash equity business in Europe.
Hamwee’s move to Argos re-establishes the professional relationship he built up with Argos CEO Jean Keller when they worked together at Lombard Odier in London in the early 1990s. At the time Hamwee was head of US equities with primary responsibility for all US institutional equity portfolio management across the group.
Keller says: “I am naturally delighted to be working once again with Nick – a very senior investment professional. He has tremendous experience of the UK market and I could think of no-one better to take Argos forward in the UK.”
Hamwee says: “Argos provides an exciting opportunity to develop a significant and differentiated new boutique asset manager here in London. The business already has some first class talent and so I am delighted to help drive this venture forward.”
