Vantil Charles

As we share a sense of deep loss at the passing of Vantil, we hope this Book of Rememberance from his friends and colleagues at Capital will bring comfort and support to his wife, Lilian, and his sons, Oliver and Cameron, as well as to each other.

Vantil’s impact at work reached far beyond LDO and Fixed Income. He had an innate ability to connect with people and bring warmth, fun and integrity to all his interactions. He impacted everyone he met with his wisdom, his sense of humour and his unforgettable dress sense. He was also a fantastic long term investor who never lost sight of our mission. We are all, no doubt, better human beings for having known him and we will miss him dearly.

Please use this Book of Rememberance as a way of sharing your happy memories & love for Vantil, our treasured friend and colleague.

Vantil was an extremely special person. We will remember him for his humour, intelligence, honesty and support. I had worked with Vantil throughout my 9 years at Exane, and at ABN/RBS prior to that – so our connection goes back a long way, during which time I learned a lot from him, as did …

That winning smile, that always got to you, Truly disarming because it was so genuine. My heart-felt condolences go out to Vantil’s family.

I had the good fortune to sit outside Vantil’s office from 2017, prime position to observe the warmth, humour and generosity he brought to the office daily and in every interaction with the constant flow of visitors in and out of his office. His voice and laughter brought a happy bassline and energy to …

It is difficult to describe the impact he has had on me, but I’m certain I’m a better man for having known him. He was truly one of a kind. He was not only a mentor and someone I looked up to, but more importantly, a great friend. I will forever be grateful for …

My condolences to the Charles family – very sorry for your loss.   Vantil was a huge character in the office: a first class investor, ESG pioneer and a caring colleague.  We’ll miss him enormously but very glad of the time we had and very proud to have known him. …

My deepest condolences to Lilian, Oliver and Cameron. Vantil was a witty, kind and caring individual who made me laugh every time I met him, often in the 3rd floor kitchen.  I will miss him. …

Through our unwavering commitment to an un-rushed, hearty lunch, most days of a working week, I got the chance to get to know Vantil and learn a lot from him. He had such a unique combination of light-heartedness and care for individuals around him. He did not take himself too seriously, yet excelled at …
