Radiant Financial Group is delighted to announce it has appointed Minesh Gajjar as its Chief Investment Officer (“CIO”), effective today.

In his role as CIO at Radiant Minesh will be building out the Group’s investment management capability, bringing in new hires and working with them to develop a client-centric proposition.

Minesh has extensive experience in driving asset growth, conducting investment research, managing and formulating portfolio management solutions and stakeholder management. Minesh joins Radiant from HSBC where he was responsible for the success of the global discretionary portfolio solution for the last three years. Previously Minesh has also held roles as a Director in Fund Research and Investment Strategy at Coutts & Co and as a Senior Investment Manager at Nedgroup Investments. Minesh is CFA-qualified.

Radiant’s shared vision and culture, its core differentiator from other advisory groups, will also be key within the investment management business. Minesh’ vision for its future development is focused on collaboration, innovation and responsible investment. He believes in the value of a close relationship between a client and their wealth and investment manager, where building trust and confidence is key, and the importance of culture in creating this positive environment. In addition, Minesh plans to utilise technology to underpin the strength of client relationships, ensuring Radiant stays ahead of the curve.

Radiant has been established with the intention of growing both organically and through the acquisition of IFA businesses, building a fully integrated advisory Group. Minesh’s appointment follows several senior hires made over that last few weeks to prepare the business for the execution of its ambitious growth strategy.

Simon Cogman-Hellier, CEO of Radiant, commented:

“Not only is Minesh an extremely experienced and knowledgeable individual, he is also innovative and forward-thinking. I am sure he will bring a great deal of value to Radiant as he oversees our investment strategies and ongoing management. His appointment is the latest in a string of exciting hires, and we now have a strong team in place with a clear vision. Together, we look forward to executing our growth strategy over the coming years.”
