Wealth Manager’s Top 30 Under 30 looks to find young stars in the UK private client investment management industry who are making their mark. This can be seen in not only Will’s rise to Head of Portfolio Management at P1, but also in his continued research in to best practices and improving investment processes. Read his most recent article on risk management here, written in collaboration with Head of Research Dr Quintin Rayer.

Now in its seventh edition, Top 30 Under 30 was more competitive than ever this year with over 210 applicants, setting a new record. This is the second year in a row that Will has made the selection for the final 30.

Wealth Manager:  “The quality of the applications also keeps on rising, making it a very tough task to whittle them down to just 30. All are excelling in their jobs and have worked hard to build the knowledge and qualifications that have seen them advance in their fields so quickly.

The select list is based on a combination of professional qualifications, with an ever-growing number having attained either CFA charter holder status or the chartered wealth manager designation, and in some cases both.

We also consider their academic achievements and the importance of the role that they play at their current companies. This includes personally running client money, being members of different investment committees or other ways in which they influence their businesses day to day.
