OMGI’s Huw Davies and Russ Oxley to attend Lausanne Summit
Huw Davies, portfolio manager, and Russ Oxley lead manager on the Old Mutual Absolute Return Government Bond fund at Old Mutual Global Investors (OMGI), will jointly outline their view on bond markets when speaking at the upcoming Pan-European Summit Lausanne 2016, 19-21 April.
Since the start of 2016, bond markets have faced significant uncertainty, with yields falling – even to negative levels – suggesting that traditional long only strategies look poorly placed to deal with the challenges, and that investors should be considering alternative approaches.
Davies brings over 23 years of fixed income investment experience to Old Mutual Global Investors. He joined from Ignis Asset Management (now part of Standard Life Investments) which he joined in early 2014 as a Fixed Income product specialist. Previously, in 2010-2014, he worked at Citi as director, UK RM Interest Rate Sales, and before that at JP Morgan Chase as executive director, Interest rate sales from 2005-2010. During his sales career he covered a range of clients, advising pension funds, LDI managers, insurance companies and absolute return funds. Before 2005, he worked in roles that covered UK and European bond sales roles at Royal Bank of Scotland, UBS, Barclays Capital and Sanwa International.
Oxley (pictured above) joined Old Mutual in April 2015. He brings over 17 years of investment management experience to Old Mutual Global Investors. Prior to joining the business, he spent 10 years working at Ignis Asset Management, initially as a UK Government Bonds investment manager from 2004 to 2007, then becoming head of Rates in 2007. During this time he also took responsibility for liability driven investments for Ignis’ clients with unconstrained mandates. In 2011 he became the lead manager of the Ignis Absolute Return Government Bond fund. Prior to joining Ignis, he worked as an assistant fund manager covering UK and International Bonds at Swiss Reinsurance from 2001 to 2003. And he spent a year at LV Group as a Fixed Income fund manager from 2000 to 2001, and was a UK Bonds trainee fund manager at Investec Asset Management from 1997 to 2000.
