GAM’s Thomas Mansley to attend Copenhagen Forum
Thomas Mansley, investment director at GAM will attend the Fund Selector Forum Copenhagen 2016, taking place 26 October at the Hotel d’Angleterre.
With a focus on US consumer credit risk versus traditional corporate credit risk, Mansley will outlined reasons investors should look more broadly at credit markets, including to assets such as non-agency US mortgage backed securities. Factors such as the health of the US consumer and the US property market mean this type of asset class offers attractive yields and low correlation when set against more traditional credit assets.
Mansley specialises in the analysis and management of mortgage and asset backed securities. He joined GAM in June 2014 from specialist MBS and ABS manager Singleterry Mansley Asset Management, which he joined in 2008 and at which he was CIO. Prior to that, he headed the structured products division at Seix Advisors, an asset management subsidiary of SunTrust. He has held a range of mortgage backed securities-related roles at firms such as JP Morgan and Credit Suisse First Boston.
Mansley holds an MBA from Pace University, an MS in mathematics from the Courant Institute at New York University, a BS in Mathematics and Computer Science from Pace University, and is a CFA charterholder. He is based in New York.
