Blackfinch Welcomes New Investment Managers
As part of its ongoing expansion, Blackfinch’s latest hires are the investment managers Jolyon Ridgwell and Stuart Tyler Lloyd
Blackfinch has welcomed two new investment managers to its growing team: Jolyon Ridgwell and Stuart Tyler Lloyd. Both new hires bring extensive experience and expertise.
Jolyon Ridgwell joins Blackfinch as an Investment Manager within its Renewables/Energy team. His most recent role was at Ecotricity where he worked as a Strategic Investment Manager for two and a half years, with a focus on the origination, refinancing and divestment of renewable energy projects.
Jolyon brings a wealth of highly relevant experience and knowledge to the business. He will be a much-needed extra resource as Blackfinch looks to increase its new deal acquisition activity.
Stuart Tyler Lloyd has joined Blackfinch as a Senior Investment Manager. He brings 20 years’ experience in investment management with recent prior roles including Head of Securities at Zurich Assurance, moving into Balance Sheet CIO.
Stuart will be responsible for running investment portfolios, and contributing to the launch and management of multiple new products. In particular Stuart will take an active role in overseeing many of Blackfinch’s Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) investee companies.
The new appointments reflect Blackfinch’s growth as it continues adapting to customer requirements. Blackfinch is adding to its product and business lines in response to legislative updates, clients’ evolving needs and the many opportunities in the market where it can apply its expertise.
Richard Cook, Blackfinch CEO, said, “We very pleased to have Jolyon Ridgwell and Stuart Tyler Lloyd on board as investment managers. Their skill and experience in providing customer-focused investment solutions is aligned with our own commitment to delivering innovative products for our customers. As we move into a definitive year for Blackfinch, they will be integral to our success.”
