Freedman joins from Standard Asset Management where he worked as a high yield investment analyst, having previously qualified as a chartered accountant with PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Newton fixed income investment leader Paul Brain says: “We are one of the few asset management companies with an investment process that is built around career research analysts. Scott’s experience will complement the breadth and depth of skills that we currently have in the team and augment the profitable liaison between the credit and global research analysts.
“The global bond markets are developing fast in this ‘all change world’ with monetary and fiscal policy evolving rapidly. This will throw up many opportunities for the global bond investor and having more resources focussed on those opportunities will help us maximise returns for both existing and future clients.”
