Schroders appoints Bob Jolly as head of global macro

Schroders has appointed Bob Jolly to a new role on its fixed income team as head of global macro based in London.

Jolly, who joins in September, will also take on lead portfolio management responsibility for a number of macro and multi-sector portfolios managed by a team of ten in London. Jolly will also work with regional portfolio managers in Asia and the US to further develop Schroders’ global macro investment framework.

Jolly joins Schroders from UBS Global Asset Management where he was head of global sovereign, currency and UK fixed income portfolio management.  Prior to UBS, Jolly spent more than two decades at Gartmore where he became head of currency and fixed income portfolio construction.  Jolly also spent two years at SEI developing customised overlay solutions for European institutional clients.

Schroders fixed income CIO Philippe Lespinard added: “Bob’s philosophy of blending judgmental and quantitative elements in a team-based framework is an excellent fit with our investment vision. I look forward to working with Bob and our regional portfolio managers to further enhance our fixed income investment platform and solutions set.”
