About Stephen Snowden

Born in December 1971 in Lisburn, Northern Ireland, fixed income investor Stephen Snowden gained a BSc and an MSc in finance from Belfast University. He joined Aegon shortly afterwards and impressed in a four-year spell as a US analyst. He was subsequently moved into the corporate bond team and took responsibility for a wide range of investments when he was promoted to head of retail fixed income in 2002. On his Aegon Extra Income fund he delivered impressive returns and a high yield. Snowden joined Old Mutual Asset Management to manage the Old Mutual Corporate Bond following Richard Woolnough’s move to M&G Investments and took charge of the fund in February 2004. He then rejoined Aegon (now Kames Capital) in July 2011, and runs the Kames Absolute Return Bond Fund.
