Ashton Bradbury appointed non-exec on Hargreave Hale VCT

Ashton Bradbury appointed non-exec on Hargreave Hale VCT

Former mid-cap mainstay Ashton Bradbury has re-entered the finance industry following his 2014 retirement with a non-exec role on the board of the Hargreave Hale AIM venture capital trust (VCT) 1.

Bradbury (pictured) a former small and mid-cap veteran was AAA-rated for large stretches of a 26 year career, which culminated in helping to create Old Mutual's highly-rated UK equity team.

David Esfandi, chief executive officer of parent group of the fund Canaccord Genuity said: ‘We are delighted that Ashton joins Hargreave Hale AIM VCT 1 at this exciting time.

'Ashton brings a valuable depth of expertise that will serve as a strong complement to strengthening governance and increasing the independence of the VCT’s existing board.’  

‘Hargreave Hale has been widely recognised for its highly successful fund management team and we look forward to further investing in and accelerating the growth of our fund management business at Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management UK as we continue with the integration of our two firms.’

Canadian investment bank Canaccord Genuity completed the acquisition of Hargreave Hale in September 2017. The trust is managed by Citywire AAA-rated manager Giles Hargreave.
