BlueBay AM strengthens EMD team with new role

BlueBay AM strengthens EMD team with new role

BlueBay Asset Management has hired a strategist for a newly-created role on their emerging market debt team, the company has announced.

Timothy Ash joins the company as emerging markets senior sovereign strategist in the emerging market debt team.

He will be based in London and report to David Dowsett, who is partner and co-head of emerging markets.

Ash will work alongside Graham Stock, who is also an emerging markets senior strategist, and the analyst team to shape investment views as well as identifying risks and opportunities at a sovereign macro level across BlueBay’s emerging market funds.

He joins the firm from Nomura, where he was head of CEEMEA credit strategy. Ash has also held head of emerging market research roles at ICBC – Standard Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland and Bear Sterns.

Commenting on the appointment, Dowsett said: ‘Global macro political and economic events are increasingly impacting developments in emerging markets.

'Our belief is that this trend will persist in the coming years, which can create investment opportunities, but requires more rigorous integration of these factors in investment decision making.'

This appointment to the bond unit follows other personnel changes at BlueBay, which saw Raphael Robelin and Geraud Charpin step back from managing the €2.7 billion BlueBay Investment Grade Absolute Return Bond fund amid wider changes to the investment grade unit.
