Alongside working with both clients and prospective investors, Underhill will be helping OP expand their reach within the UK intermediary space.

Underhill's appointment reflects OP’s focus on introducing its contrarian, Value-oriented global equity strategies to a wide range of UK investors.

Underhill was previously Head of Discretionary at Artemis Investment Management and has over twenty years asset management experience focused on intermediary clients in the UK, Channel Islands and Dublin.

Ed Troughton, Head of Client Relations and Business Development (ex US) at OP, says: “We are thrilled to have attracted someone of Tom’s calibre. His experience and relationships within the intermediary space will be highly valuable as we look to further enhance our support to intermediaries and consultants in the UK and help clients achieve their investment goals. He has a proven track record of building client relationships, and it is great for OP to have him on board at this exciting time for the firm and for markets.”

Underhill says: “I’m really looking forward to joining an investment-led boutique whose absolute dedication to contrarian Value investing is a distinct and compelling proposition for investors. It’s an exciting time for OP and for Value investing. I look forward to joining Ed and the wider team to support both existing clients and prospective investors.”
