Independent investment house Tyndall Investment Management (Tyndall) has appointed Theresa Russell as Head of Distribution. In this new role, Theresa will drive the firm’s business development, principally focussing on Tyndall’s range of retail funds whilst supporting the growth of the Partnerships franchise serving financial advisers, and the company as a whole.
With over two decades’ industry experience, Theresa brings a strong track record for building the profile of boutique fund groups across diverse client types and growing assets under management. Most recently, she was Head of Sales and Marketing at absolute return and fixed income specialist CG Asset Management. During her time in this role, she was pivotal in doubling assets under management and increasing the firm’s client base among retail and institutional investors.
Prior to this, Theresa was Head of Sales and Marketing at GVQ Investment Management, where, as well as growing assets across the firm, she was successful in diversifying the shareholder register of Strategic Equity Capital plc, particularly among wealth managers. She joined GVQ Investment Management from Legal and General where she consistently exceeded her sales targets in her role as Senior Discretionary Investment Sales Manager covering London-based discretionary relationships.
Alex Odd, Chief Executive Officer at Tyndall, said, “Since we launched five years ago, Tyndall has enjoyed consistent growth in our client base and in assets under management. While we are proud of this achievement, of equal importance to us is preserving a culture which always strives to deliver a combination of exceptional performance and service to our clients. Our team is central to achieving that.
“Theresa’s outstanding history for building awareness of investment brands and thereby driving strong growth stems from her deep appreciation of what sets investment boutiques apart from the asset management mainstream. It is this shared passion for delivering excellence that makes Theresa a natural fit with Tyndall.”
Theresa Russell added, “I firmly believe that investors are best served by an unswerving focus on achieving strong returns through active management, underlined by personal accountability and supported by bespoke attention. These are attributes which are best delivered by investment boutiques and they run through the very fabric of Tyndall. I very much look forward to bringing Tyndall’s excellent reputation to a wider group of clients and playing a role in the company’s continued success.”
