Ex-BNY Mellon AM head joins Old Mutual board

Jon Little founded Northill Capital after departing BNY Mellon in 2010.

A former head of BNY Mellon’s International Asset Management arm has joined Old Mutual Wealth’s board as an independent non-executive director.

Jon Little is currently a partner at Northill Capital, a company he founded in 2010 and that provides equity and seed capital to start-ups and early stage asset managers.

Prior to founding Northill Capital, Little was vice chairman at BNY Mellon Asset Management having first joined the US bank in 2000.

He was also head of all non-US asset management businesses at BNY Mellon and has held several board positions at various buy-side firms.

Little has also previously worked at JP Morgan Investment Management, Fidelity and Jupiter Fund Management.

He is the sixth director to be appointed to the board at Old Mutual Wealth since Glyn Jones became chairman in September last year.

Jones explained Little’s “excellent knowledge and understand of the asset management industry will be invaluable as we continue to develop Old Mutual Global Investors”.
