Ashburton Investments appoints Senior Portfolio Manager


 Ashburton Investments International, the Jersey-based investment management business of FirstRand group, has recruited Tarly Bolla as Senior Portfolio Manager. 

Tarly has over 20 years’ experience of managing multi-asset portfolios. He joins Ashburton from a local boutique asset manager, having previously worked as a senior portfolio manager for over ten years at a major European private bank. He holds qualifications in Wealth Management and Alternative Investment Analysis, as well as a Post Graduate Diploma in EU Politics & Economics and a BA (Hons) Economics.

He will manage the multi-asset portfolio strategies and the Jersey portfolio management team who provide discretionary portfolio services to private clients, trusts, companies and financial advisors.

Dr James Cooke, Director of Investment and Head of Global Equity, commented:
“We are delighted to welcome Tarly to Ashburton Investments. His expertise in alternative investments and in private client portfolio management strengthens the team and we look forward to seeing his ideas help drive our multi asset portfolio performance further.”He added: “In the current environment many developed market bonds are offering guaranteed negative real, and sometimes even nominal, returns when held to maturity. Tarly’s skill and expertise in portfolio management will be a real asset to us.”

Tarly said: “I’m really pleased to be joining such an admired local firm with a global presence. We’re making great strides in identifying attractive opportunities for clients across a broad set of asset classes, but especially in alternative assets that provide both diversification benefits and, we believe offer a compelling balance of risk and reward.”

Ashburton Investments have been trusted by clients to run private client portfolios in Jersey for over 40 years'.
