Ashburton bolsters multi asset team
Ashburton Investments strengthened its multi asset team with three hires in its London office.
Mark Melehes joined the business as a cross-asset strategist in April. Jianzhong “Jack” Ren joined the team as a fixed income analyst and Samed Hysa as a macro analyst. Melehes, Ren and Hysa will help to further develop Ashburton’s multi asset offering which has a track record of more than 30 years.
Mark Melehes, cross-asset strategist, comes with a strong background in generating and structuring of trades in both cash and volatility markets. Prior to joining Ashburton, he worked at Pivot Capital Management and most recently at SEIA Capital Management as its head of trading.
Jianzhong “Jack” Ren, fixed income analyst, is responsible for fixed income and macro analysis in developed, emerging and frontier markets. Jack comes with a deep expertise in credit across the capital structure. Prior to joining Ashburton, he spent five years at the macro fund Caxton Associates.
Samed Hysa, macro analyst, is responsible for analysing developed and emerging market economies of interest on a macro and cross-asset basis. His role also involves developing broader macro and thematic research for the multi asset team. Prior to joining, Samed had several internships, including with HSBC and Blackrock.
Stephen Kelso, CEO of Ashburton Investments (International), commented: “Our multi asset offering has been the cornerstone of our business for more than 30 years and we are delighted to welcome Mark, Jack and Samed to the team as we continue to grow our leading proposition.
“As part of our investment process we aim to effectively manage risk and access additional sources of return for our investors, and each new hire brings invaluable knowledge and skills in different areas of the market to our business.”
