Rathbones, a provider of investment management services for individuals, charities and professional advisers, has continued to strengthen its research capability with a series of new hires in the collectives and fixed income teams.
Saif Sajid and Joe Young join the collectives’ team as analysts.
Sajid joins from StatPro Group, (now part of Confluence) where he was a financial client service analyst, responsible for client liaison and verifying financial data. Prior to this he worked for Greystone Wealth Management as a multi-asset research analyst. As part of the collectives team, Sajid’s areas of coverage include Japanese equities, government bonds, index-linked and high-quality investment grade bonds. He reports to senior research analyst, Emma Saunders.
Young transfers from the client development team at Rathbones, where he had been an investment analyst for two years, exhibiting back-tested models to prospective and existing clients. Prior to that he was an operations analyst at macro hedge fund, Harmonic Capital Partners. As an analyst on the collectives team, Joe will cover funds in the Asian and emerging market equity space, as well as high yield and convertible bond funds. He will report to Alex Moore, head of collectives research.
Alex Moore, head of collectives research, says: “Rathbones continues to invest in quality staff to support its growth, and an important part of that growth is our research capability.
“Saif’s and Joe’s respective experience, knowledge and enthusiasm is providing valuable input to the team and the expertise we provide our clients.”
In the fixed income team, Edward Iley joins as a credit analyst. Prior to this he was a bank credit analyst at DBRS Morningstar and has also served as a junior trade economist at HSBC Global Research. At Rathbones, he will be responsible for providing analysis to the team across a range of fixed income securities.
Iley will report to Bryn Jones, head of fixed income, who says: “Edward joins our team at a fascinating time for the asset class. There are significant opportunities in fixed income markets at present and Edward’s addition to the team will provide invaluable support across our fixed income mandates.”
