Benjamin Armstrong, CFA, a portfolio manager in charge of the fixed income investment strategies with RMB Asset Management, has been promoted to senior vice president.
“Ben is a true leader, not only within the investment group, but in our organisation as a whole,” says Chris Graff, partner and director of asset management. “He has business acumen and strong relationship-building skills on top of his technical expertise and passion for investing. We’re happy to recognise his contributions with this promotion.”
With RMB since 2011, Armstrong drives portfolio construction for proprietary fixed income investment strategies, guided by the firm’s overarching investment philosophy. He relies upon more than two decades of experience related to fundamental credit analysis and macroeconomic research across the investment-grade universe of corporate and municipal bonds.
Armstrong earned a BA in Economics from Grinnell College followed by an MBA in Finance and Organizational Behavior from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. Prior to RMB, he held positions at Fiduciary Asset Management, William Blair & Company, and Lehman Brothers. Armstrong is a member of the CFA Institute, the CFA Society of Chicago, and a member of the board for Camp Manito-wish YMCA.
