CCLA Investment Management has appointed a new director and chief investment officer for its charity funds.
James Bevan was previously head of investment at Abbey, and has also worked at Inscape and Barclays in senior investment strategy roles.
Michael Quicke, chief executive of CCLA, described Bevan as an industry leader with experience in the UK's top financial institutions.
"CCLA has the widest range and some of the best common funds designed for charities in the UK," he added. "With Bevan's help, we will further improve the way we work with our clients and the charity sector as a whole."
Javier Maldonado, chief executive of Abbey Wealth Management, said Bevan had played an important part in the development of the business. "We are sorry to see him go," he added.
Andrew Robinson, head of community development banking for the Royal Bank of Scotland and NatWest, is also joining CCLA as a director.
