Schroders has appointed Bob Jolly to a new role on its fixed income team as head of Global Macro based in London. Jolly, who joins in September, will also take on lead portfolio management responsibility for a number of macro and multi sector portfolios managed by a team of ten in London.

Current mandates include aggregate, sovereign and absolute return strategies with nearly $15 Billion1 of assets under management. Jolly will also work with regional portfolio managers in Asia and the US to further develop Schroders’ global macro investment framework.

Jolly joins Schroders from UBS Global Asset Management where he was head of Global Sovereign, Currency and UK Fixed Income Portfolio Management. Prior to UBS, Jolly spent more than two decades at Gartmore where he became head of Currency and Fixed Income Portfolio Construction. He also spent two years at SEI developing customised overlay solutions for European institutional clients.
 
Karl Dasher, Global Head of Fixed Income, commented; “We are very pleased to bring someone of Bob’s calibre to our team. Bob has more than two decades of quantifiable experience as a portfolio manager in the global fixed income and currency markets, and he has developed one of the more enviable and consistent track records through highly varied environments. Bob’s proven execution skills as well as his strategic sense of how to build and evolve a macro investment process complements our long term strategy.”

Philippe Lespinard, CIO of Schroders Fixed Income, added; “Bob’s philosophy of blending judgmental and quantitative elements in a team based framework is an excellent fit with our investment vision. I look forward to working with Bob and our regional portfolio managers to further enhance our fixed income investment platform and solutions set.”
