P1 Investment Management, a UK-based adviser-led discretionary fund management (DFM) business, has appointed Quintin Rayer as its head of research.

Rayer, who joins from Guernsey-based Fort Grey Consulting, will be responsible for investment research, portfolio stress-testing, and the development of quant models.

Prior to joining Fort Grey Consulting, Rayer served as head of quantitative research and risk monitoring for the fund solutions team at Societe Generale Private Banking, where he spent almost a decade.

P1 managing director James Priday said: “We are committed to attracting the best talent in the industry and are pleased to have Quintin on board as he brings with him over 16 years of experience in the field of research and fund analysis.”

P1 was launched in February 2016 by Priday. The firm currently offers nine core model investment portfolios covering five risk levels and three primary objectives of income, capital growth and balanced.
