Tellworth bolsters business development team with Artemis hire

Tellworth Investments, founded by UK small-cap specialists Paul Marriage and John Warren, has appointed Lawrence Brennan to work alongside Helme Harrison as a director of business development. 

In his new role, Brennan will be assisting with the strategic growth and development for Tellworth, as it looks to expand into new markets. 

Brennan joins from Artemis Investment Management, where he was head of wealth managers from 2017. Brennan was responsible for distribution and fund manager engagements in the intermediary market focussing on the wealth managers as well as business expansion in the Nordics. Brennan began his career in sales in 2001 at ABN AMRO, following six years in the Household Cavalry. 

The ex-Schroders and Cazenove Marriage and Warren duo, which partnered with multi-boutique investment business BennBridge in 2017, has since built out its team of active and engaged fundamental bottom-up investors. Tellworth runs concentrated portfolios targeting young ambitious companies in the UK and Europe, with a focus on the former. 

John Warren, co-founder and fund manager at Tellworth, says: “Larry brings a wealth of experience in sales and distribution across multiple channels. His proven track record of penetrating new markets and exceeding sales targets will be central to building the Tellworth brand, as it looks to the next step in its development.” 

Brennan adds: “I look forward to collaborating with such a talented team. Tellworth’s small-cap expertise makes it well positioned to benefit from the recovery in UK equity markets, which are still relatively cheap, and presents a compelling opportunity for investors to capitalise on post-Covid growth.”
