Schroders has appointed Chris Paine from Henderson Global Investors to the firm’s multi-asset investments team.
Paine (pictured) will become a fund manager on the global income portfolio management team, which manages a suite of global income funds on behalf of its clients.
Paine brings over 20 years of investment experience to the role. He will report to Aymeric Forest, head of global income, multi-asset investments. Paine brings both an equity management background and quantitative analytical expertise. He will strengthen the team’s research capabilities, as well as add to the oversight of security selection, asset allocation and portfolio construction.
Prior to joining Schroders, he spent over a decade at Henderson, joining in 2000 as a quantitative analyst on its economics and strategy team. He was named director, asset allocation, in 2007 after having developed a range of tactical asset allocation models. Most recently, Paine had been director of research, multi-asset, a role he assumed in 2012. He was also a member of Henderson’s Global Policy Committee, which oversees asset allocation across the firm.
Before Henderson, Paine was a quantitative analyst at NPI Asset Management, joining from consultant William M Mercer.
Forest says: “We have seen continued demand from investors for sustainable income, delivered by diversifying across different asset classes. As a result we are strengthening our capabilities further by continuing to invest in senior talent.”
