Navin joins Victory Hill from Cantor Fitzgerald where he was a member of the Investment Companies desk within the Capital Markets Division. His experience in supporting and bringing new and established managers to the Investment Trust market in the United Kingdom has been invaluable during his tenure at the firm. Prior to his time at Cantor Fitzgerald, he has spent over 10 years working on the buy-side where he had been responsible for assessing and allocating investments across a
number of asset classes including private equity and infrastructure funds, while working at prominent investment firms such as Quilter Cheviot, Merrill Lynch and Russell Investments. In this context, he has been identified as a Top 100 UK Funds Analyst by Citywire, for 5 consecutive years between 2013-2017.

Both David and Navin will play an integral role in supporting the listing of Victory Hill’s debut fund on the London Stock Exchange later this year and will help guide our firm’s future growth and engagement within the global investor community.
