Hermes Investment Management Appoints Murphy To Top Research Role

May 30 2017 | 10:07pm ET

Hermes Investment Management has named former VTB Capital executive Orla Murphy as the company’s new research director, as next year’s implementation of Europe’s MiFID II regulations looms.

In her new role, Murphy will oversee the procurement of equity and credit research from brokers and independent research providers for Hermes’ investment teams, the company said in a statement. She will also be responsible for establishing, reporting and linking research value, managing the research budget, transaction cost analysis and other MiFID II issues.

Murphy will be based at the company’s London headquarters and report to head of investment Eoin Murray, Hermes added. The position is new. 

Murphy joins Hermes from VTB Capital, where her roles included business manager for international equities and cross-asset business manager. Beforehand, she held business management and analysis positions at Barclays Wealth and Fidelity Investments.

Headquartered in London, Hermes manages £30.3 billion on behalf of more than 330 clients across equities, fixed income, alternatives and real estate strategies.
