S&W hires ex-JPM veteran for fixed income trust

S&W hires ex-JPM veteran for fixed income trust

Smith & Williamson Investment Management has taken on John Anderson (pictured) to manage its £27.8 million Fixed Interest Trust.

Subject to regulatory approval, John will join as a partner next week. He left JPMorgan in 2011 following a review of his Sterling Corporate Bond fund. Prior to that he had a role as head of credit at Gartmore and also spent nine years as head of fixed interest at Rensburg Sheppards.

The Fixed Interest trust is bottom quartile of the IMA Corporate bonds sector over one year to May, with a net loss of 0.6%, compared with a rise of 2.3% for the sector. It is second quartile in three years, returning 20.7% compared to 20.1% for the sector.

'I am delighted to be joining Chris Lynas and the team to take on management of the Smith & Williamson Fixed Interest trust.  Their Short Dated Corporate Bond fund is one of the first of its kind and its success is a reflection of the team’s ability to manage fixed income assets in a conservative fashion. Managing the Fixed Interest trust is a great opportunity for me to help them grow the fixed income franchise,' Anderson said. 

'John is a highly regarded, corporate bond manager with an impressive following in the UK retail market.  He is a substantial addition to Smith & Williamson and his approach fits well in to our highly regarded bond team,'  Ed Rosengarten, partner and head of funds business added.
