Manulife Asset Management adds to portfolio solutions group


Manulife Asset Management has named R James (Jamie) Robertson as a senior portfolio manager in its portfolio solutions group (PSG), subject to regulatory approval.

Robertson is based in Toronto and reports to Nathan Thooft, co-head of PSG for North America. PSG oversees all the multi-asset-class strategies for Manulife Asset Management globally.
Robertson will be responsible for overseeing Manulife Asset Management's Canadian asset allocation franchise, including portfolio management, research and development, and supporting product development, business development, and trading.
"We are pleased to welcome Jamie to Manulife Asset Management," says Thooft. "He is a senior investment professional with a long history of managing asset allocation portfolios. We believe our clients and our firm will benefit from his expertise and his leadership of Canadian portfolio management across a wide range of multi-asset and multi-manager solutions. Jamie leads the PSG team in Toronto and will work closely with the other members of PSG in the US and Asia."
Most recently, Robertson was chief investment officer with McLean and Partners in Calgary, where he was responsible for driving and improving the investment performance of multi-asset-class portfolios at one of Canada's largest private wealth management companies, with assets of more than one billion dollars.
Prior to that, he served as vice president, propriety investments (equities) at Manulife Financial, where he helped increase equity holdings to more than CAD800 million with exposures in all major international markets.
