Jupiter veteran Gibbs set to retire

Jupiter veteran Gibbs set to retire

Jupiter’s veteran investor Philip Gibbs has announced his plans to step down from one of his largest funds before retiring fully from fund management in October 2014.

The former Citywire A-rated manager has been with the asset management firm since 1997 and has run a number of different portfolios during his tenure.

One notable strategy was the Jupiter JGF Global Financials fund, which he co-ran with Robert Mumby between November 2006 and October 2011.

He was then replaced by Guy De Blonay on the Luxembourg-domiciled fund but continued to run a number of other UK-domiciled strategies.

Ahead of his planned departure, Jupiter announced Gibbs will hand responsibility for the UK-domiciled Jupiter Absolute Return Fund to recent hire James Clunie.

The former SWIP fund manager, who joined the firm in July 2013, will assume the lead role on the €555 million fund in September 2013.

Commenting on his planned departure, Gibbs said: ‘It has been a pleasure to have served clients in my funds over the past 16 years and I am looking forward to continuing with the management of the Jupiter Second Split Investment Trust until October 2014.’
