LV= Asset Management appoints Toby Vaughan to its Multi Manager team

Press release: 06/04/2010

LV= Asset Management (LVAM), the fund management arm of mutual insurance and investment group LV=, has appointed Toby Vaughan as Principal Fund Manager within its Multi Manager team.

Toby joins from F&C Investments, where he began his career, and latterly was a Director within the asset allocation team. He will report to LVAM's Head of Multi Manager and Fund Selection, Tom Caddick.

Toby will work alongside Tom and the team's other Principal Fund Manager, Simon Brooks. This follows significant inflows into LV='s Multi Manager products, including the LV= Managed Portfolio range, where total funds under management now exceed £100 million.

Tom Caddick commented: "I am really pleased that Toby has agreed to join LVAM. I have known Toby for some time now, having also worked with him at F&C, and know that he brings a wealth of experience and complementary skills to the team. I see this as the final piece in the jigsaw with regard to team construction and I am looking forward to working with Toby again to build on the success we have achieved so far with our multi manager offering."

Toby Vaughan said: "I am pleased to be joining LVAM at such an exciting time in the company’s growth phase, helping build the Multi Manager proposition and working with Tom again."


LVAM offers two multi manager ranges. The first offers three globally-diversified funds positioned in the IMA Cautious Managed, Balanced Managed and Active Managed sectors. The funds, LV= Diversified Income, LV= Balanced Managed and LV= Stockmarket funds, are all S&P A-rated.

LV= Managed Portfolios offers four global, unfettered, multi manager funds that are managed to reflect the most common client risk profile outcomes within a number of client risk profiling tools. Each of the four LV= Managed Portfolios is also S&P A-rated.

All seven multi manager funds offered by LVAM are marketed directly to advisers, are available via leading platforms and wraps and linked pension fund variants are offered via the LV= Retirement Solutions business.
