LONDON, February 12, 2018 – OppenheimerFunds, a leading global asset manager, announced the appointment of Charles Oldmeadow as Business Development Director. He will join the team focusing predominantly on intermediary clients and institutions in the UK.
Oldmeadow joins from Jupiter Asset Management, where he was responsible for Discretionary Wealth Managers. He will be based in London and report to Doug Stewart, Head of EMEA for OppenheimerFunds.
