Livingbridge expands Equity Funds business with appointment of investment analyst

Livingbridge has expanded its Equity Funds business with the appointment of David Leahy to Investment Analyst. Leahy initially joined the Livingbridge private equity team in September 2016 to focus on investing in high growth companies, both public and privately owned. 

Livingbridge earlier this year expanded the Equity Funds business with the launch of the new CF Livingbridge UK Multi Cap Income Fund, which exists alongside the CF Livingbridge UK Micro Cap Fund, the Livingbridge private equity business and the Baronsmead Venture Trusts. 
 
Leahy’s appointment as Investment Analyst will support the growth of the CF Livingbridge UK Micro Cap Fund and CF Livingbridge Multi Cap Income Fund (the “Livingbridge Equity Funds”).  
 
The Livingbridge Equity Funds’ strategy is to apply a private equity lens to public market equity investing. This enables it to identify companies with the potential to deliver long-term returns and results in high conviction portfolios which seek to outperform.
 
Ken Wotton, Fund Manager of Livingbridge Equity Funds, says: “This has been an important year for us with our new Multi Cap Income Fund launching in the summer. I am delighted to welcome David into the Equity Funds team. His appointment demonstrates our commitment to invest in people to maintain the strength in depth of our investment team to support our long term growth plans.”
 
Mark Turner, Partner of Livingbridge, says: “We have ambitious, long-term plans to ensure the continued performance of our funds.  David’s appointment is part of our ongoing investment in this area of our business and he will further strengthen our investment team.”
