Westwood’s Mato to discuss convertibles at Luxembourg Roundtable
Shawn Mato (pictured), senior vice president and senior portfolio manager at Westwood Holdings Group will discuss investing in convertibles at the Investment Europe Fund Selector Roundtable held in Luxembourg on 18 February.
He will argue that asset allocators face significant challenges to avoid overpaying for risk only to fall short of their capital market assumptions. According to Mato, convertibles offer asymmetric investment opportunities in the current volatile market environment.
Mato joined Westwood in 2014, where he currently serves as senior portfolio manager and as member of the firm’s Global Convertible Securities team. Prior to joining Westwood, he spent the last ten years co-managing both the long only and absolute return global convertible securities strategies and, the previous three years, as an equity analyst at Aviva Investors.
Before that, he worked among others at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, a Financial Consultant at Deloitte and Touché LLP, and held a variety of roles at Nomura Securities.
