Curveball thrown

Changes at Devon Funds as a portfolio manager changes direction and takes a new curve.

Friday, February 17th 2023, 3:28PM

After more than two years working with the team at Devon Funds, portfolio manager Victoria Harris has decided it is time for her to leave the business and focus her efforts on her other commercial interest, The Curve.

This is a digital platform established to support women to better understand the world of investing. She will leave Devon in April and will be spending much of the next year in the UK growing her business there.

Devon managing director, Slade Robertson says that “Victoria has been a fantastic member of our team, but she goes with our support, and we are excited for her as she commits to this new direction in her career. Victoria worked on our Sustainability Fund and contributed heavily to Devon’s ESG program."

"Fortunately, we have successfully built strong layers of succession throughout our business, and as such I have great confidence in the transition of responsibilities. Mark Brown, Devon chief investment officer, will take up the reins of managing the Sustainability Fund, alongside Patrick Washer, who has been promoted to the role of assistant portfolio manager for this strategy, together with his existing duties as an equity analyst.

Alice Jones will also assist in this area as Devon’s ESG Analyst. Jones has already been working with Harris in this capacity.

Devon manages $2 billion on behalf of wholesale and retail clients with a focus on the New Zealand and Australian equity markets. Devon continues to have one of the largest equity investment teams in New Zealand.
