His new role will also have direct responsibility for the firm’s institutional consulting business.

He is a member of the CFA Institute, becoming a CFA charterholder in 2012, the CFA Society of the UK and a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment.
He said: “I am looking forward to the challenges that I will face in my new role continuing to work with the strong investment team that ARC have established over a period of fifteen years.”
Andrew Kettlety has been promoted to senior investment analyst in recognition of his success both in passing his CFA exams and his growing client-facing responsibilities.
Mr Kettlety joined ARC in 2010 having spent six years working in the City of London. For part of this time, he worked for Butterfield Private Bank, where he was responsible for implementing an equity algorithmic trading system and developing the company’s portfolio performance attribution reporting.
Andrew Renouf has been promoted to the role of investment consultant. Mr Renouf joined ARC in October 2007 after working at Credit Suisse for 13 years as a best execution securities dealer both in Guernsey and Monaco.
