RS Investments, a San Francisco-based investment management firm, has appointed Kevin Booth co-portfolio manager of RS High Yield Bond Fund.

“Kevin’s decades of experience are reflective of the strength of the team supporting RS’s fixed income funds,” says Leslie Barbi, who heads fixed income investing for RS Funds and Guardian Investor Services, the sub-adviser for RS fixed income funds.

The RS fixed income team consists of more than 30 investment professionals who, on average, have 15 years of investment experience.

Prior to this, Booth was a managing director at BlackRock/Merrill Lynch Investment Managers and was co-head of BlackRock’s leveraged finance business through January 2009, specialising in portfolios consisting of leveraged bank loans, high yield bonds, and distressed obligations. He managed five closed-end and two open-end high-yield funds with assets under management of USD2bn.

He joins co-portfolio managers Marc Gross and Howard Most on RS High Yield Bond Fund.
