‘Adrian and Matthew have a proven working relationship and this move looks to build on their effective collaboration, as well as being part of Matthew’s overall natural career progression,’ said Jeff Taylor (pictured), head of European equities at Invesco Perpetual.

He added: ‘Matthew is a talented stock picker and he and Adrian have produced strong results for our clients. Matthew has a thorough knowledge of European stocks across the market cap range which should benefit the European Smaller Companies fund.’
