Aviva Investors has hired former Bank of England economist Michael Grady as senior economist and strategist for its Aviva Investors Multi-Strategy funds.

Grady will report to Ian Pizer, head of strategy at Aviva Investors.

He will be responsible for leading investment strategy on the AIMS range, as well as looking at macroeconomic developments across the globe for the firm. He will work alongside senior economist Stewart Robertson.

Grady joins from hedge fund Comac Capital, where he did analysis to feed into the investment process.

He previously worked at the Bank of England for 10 years in a number of roles, including as a senior manager in the markets directive.

Pizer says: “Michael brings considerable experience in market analysis and in the development of investment strategies, qualities that will help us achieve continued success.

“A deeply embedded discipline in fundamental research and strategy has proved pivotal so far in driving the strong performance of our AIMS funds and more widely across our fund range.”
