Thomas Nixon

Executive, Compliance



I joined Castlefield in January 2018, having previously worked for another fund management firm locally. I was attracted to the opportunity to work for a growing and ambitious investment business in the heart of Manchester. I studied Law with Politics at the University of Manchester, graduating in 2014.


My role in the Compliance team involves ensuring that we keep pace with an ever-changing regulatory environment and consequently implement the right policies and practices to achieve this. I work with the investment management and fund management parts of the business, where Castlefield’s responsible and sustainable approach to investment has provided an interesting aspect to my work – one which I had not experienced previously. The opportunity to work for a business that views sustainability and social influence as important considerations in investment decisions was a major factor in my decision to move to Castlefield. I have also enjoyed the opportunity to complete qualifications with the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment during my time at Castlefield.


Outside of the office I am often found running home to southern England to escape the Manchester rain. I spend a lot of time watching either my home town team (Maidstone United) or my family team (Carlisle United) struggle.
