• Thomas Nixon

Manager, Compliance

Chartered FCSI

I joined Castlefield in January 2018, having previously worked for another fund management firm locally. I was attracted by the opportunity to work for an ambitious investment business in the heart of Manchester.

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 business practices to achieve this. I work with the investment management, fund management and advice sides of the business.

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 stewardship 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 and I achieved Chartered FCSI status in 2022.

Outside of the office I enjoy walking, cycling, the theatre and spending time watching Carlisle United struggle.
