GAM hires Soros fund manager for absolute return team

GAM hires Soros fund manager for absolute return team

GAM has bolstered its absolute return fixed income team with the appointment of a Soros Fund Management investment manager. 

Owen Job, who has around 12 years' investment experience mainly within the macro strategy space, joined GAM on 6 November and will be based at its London headquarters. 

The new hire brings GAM’s absolute return fixed income team to 19 based in London and New York, with responsibility for $11 billion (£8.4 billion) worth of assets. 

Commenting on the appointment, GAM investment director and business unit head fixed income Tim Haywood said: 'Owen joins with considerable macro strategy experience spanning more than a decade – he will further strengthen our proposition regarding theme generation and positioning across asset classes. '

The appointment comes a day after GAM revealed it was switching its London base from St James's to Finsbury Circus
