Royal London makes strategic multi asset hire with the appointment of Trevor Greetham
21 January 2015
Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) today announces the appointment of Trevor Greetham as Head of Multi Asset.
Trevor joins from Fidelity Worldwide Investment where he was Asset Allocation Director since 2006, responsible for implementing tactical investment decisions across a wide range of institutional and retail funds including the Fidelity Multi Asset Strategic Fund. He has a strong performance track record and is well known for his work on the Investment Clock, an approach linking the performance of various investments to the different phases of the economic cycle. Prior to his role at Fidelity, Trevor was Director of Asset Allocation for Merrill Lynch and he qualified as an actuary with Provident Mutual.
Trevor joins RLAM in April in the newly-created role. He will manage a team of multi asset specialists tasked with managing existing assets and developing new asset allocation solutions for institutional and retail clients. A key part of Trevor’s role will be to leverage the skills and experience of RLAM’s existing investment team. He will report to Piers Hillier, RLAM’s recently appointed Chief Investment Officer.
The hire forms a significant part of RLAM’s ambition to broaden its investment expertise and product offering within the multi asset space. This follows the launch of the RL Absolute Return Government Bond Fund in November, which introduced RLAM’s absolute return capabilities to the broader market.
Piers Hillier, RLAM’s recently appointed Chief Investment Officer, commented:
“I am delighted that Trevor will be joining us and look forward to working closely with him. Trevor’s new role marks an important phase in RLAM’s development.”
“By appointing an experienced asset allocator like Trevor, we hope to be able to extend multi asset capabilities to all investors. We feel that multi asset strategies will be an important growth area over the long term and this new hire is key to bringing this opportunity to all of our clients in the future.”
Trevor Greetham said: “I am excited to be joining the company at this stage in its evolution and at a time of great change and opportunity in the world of pensions and investments. Multi asset investing offers an attractive smoothing of returns in ever-changing market conditions. A robust tactical asset allocation process allows investors to exploit shorter term opportunities and can generate significant added value over time.”
