Hermes Fund Managers has hired Zoë Shaw as head of fixed income, a newly-created role.
Shaw will 'look to build on the strong fixed income and credit capabilities already in place and create a range of specialist credit capabilities that leverage Hermes’ unique ownership structure,' the company said.
She has joined from specialist fixed income investment advisory firm Promethion, where she had been managing director since 2009. Before that, she was founder and managing partner of New Bond Street Asset Management, also a fixed income asset manager.
Shaw will report in to Hermes' chief executive officer Saker Nusseibeh.
'Attracting top talent is key and we are extremely please to be welcoming someone of Zoë’s calibre to Hermes. Zoë brings with her a wealth of knowledge and industry experience, and will play an integral role in creating a range of specialist credit capabilities which will give clients the opportunity to invest in hard to access areas of the fixed income spectrum,' Nusseibeh said.
