St James’s Place (SJP) has appointed Corinne Lord as senior investment specialist in its newly-created CIO office.

Lord (pictured) joins SJP from Cazenove Capital, where she was an investment product executive. Prior to this she worked at Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) and Amundi Asset Management.

SJP’s CIO office brings together CIO-level investment expertise via a small group of specialists to help support in the running of the investment process.

The investment specialists will cover both SJP’s investment management approach and Rowan Dartington, SJP’s discretionary fund management arm.

Lord will be working with CIO Justin Onuekwusi, who moved over from LGIM to take up the role last October.

The latest hire follows several other senior appointments including Joe Wiggins as director of investment research and Hetal Mehta as head of economic research.

Onuekwusi commented: “The appointment of Corinne will help to amplify SJP’s investment voice to the partnership and within the wider marketplace, alongside the creation of the CIO office. She comes to the team with a wealth of experience and will help to provide CIO level expertise on markets.

“As the largest wealth manager in the UK communicating our asset allocation decisions and long-term views on the market is crucial in helping a wider audience understand SJP’s approach to investment management.”
