Kames grows fixed income with new hires
Kames Capital has grown its fixed income team with the appointment of Claire McGuckin as investment manager.
McGuckin is the latest appointment to the fixed income team, following the arrival of Debbie King, Garvin Peoples and Paul Dilworth in January 2012, Greg Mackay in November 2011 and Stephen Snowden in July 2011.
McGuckin joins Kames from Legal & General Investment Management, where she was a fund manager. She will cover high yield credits, and report to Phil Milburn (pictured), who manages the Kames High Yield Bond and Kames High Yield Global Bond Funds.
Milburn said: “Claire’s 18 years experience in credit research will further strengthen our award winning fixed income capabilities, particularly in the high yield sector, where she will work closely with myself, Melanie Mitchell and Debbie as we look to maintain our consistency and build on our recent successes.”
