SWIP appoints Quantrill as head of bond product

SWIP has appointed Gareth Quantrill as head of bond product, a newly created role, within its global bonds and economics team.

Quantrill will be responsible for implementing the asset allocation of SWIP’s high alpha aggregate bond mandates and will be the senior client-facing contact for the bond team in the UK Institutional market. Quantrill will report directly to Rod Davidson, SWIP’s global head of fixed income.

Quantrill brings over 16 years of fixed income investment experience to the role, joining SWIP from Henderson Global Investors where he was head of credit.

SWIP global head of fixed income Rod Davidson: “Gareth is a highly regarded investor and his knowledge and experience of the areas in which we have been growing will help accelerate our plans. Our fixed income business is expanding rapidly, especially into areas such as liability driven investment, structured credit and absolute return and the success of the team means we are able to attract investment professionals of Gareth’s calibre and he will be integral to this development.”

Quantrill says:”I have been impressed by SWIP’s recent success and ambition to exploit the many opportunities it has in the institutional, wholesale and structured credit markets. I look forward to returning to Scotland to work with Rod and the team to build on this success.”
