Daldry has been with the firm since 2008, when he joined the graduate programme, and has worked across the fixed income business doing a stint as a financials sector credit researcher before joining Carver last year.

The appointment marks the formalisation of Daldry’s role as Carver’s co-manager. Going forward the pair will source additional research from the fixed income team which has around £67bn under management.

Speculation Swip was about to be sold by parent company LLoyds Banking Group was rife in April, and Threadneedle parent company Ameriprise Financial was rumoured to be preparing a takeover bid for the Edinburgh-based investment manager.
