Everyone at Newton is deeply saddened by the news that our dear colleague Suzanne Hutchins, head of our Real Return team, died suddenly of natural causes at home last week.
Suzanne has been integral to the life of Newton for many years, having first joined in 1991 to work with the firm’s founder Stewart Newton, and gone on to play a leading role in the growth of our Global Real Return strategy. She was universally admired throughout the firm and beyond.
As well as being a passionate investor and committed to clients, Suzanne was a great people leader, and she was instrumental in nurturing, training, and helping to shape the careers of the eight members of the Real Return team, and of many others across Newton.
The Real Return team are keen to build on her legacy, and are well-equipped to do so given the team-based approach that she cultivated, and the support of the broader colleagues whose professional lives Suzanne influenced so positively.
Please join us in supporting her family and her team at this incredibly difficult time.
