Old Mutual Global Investors will open an office in Edinburgh as part of the formation of a Fixed Income Absolute Return Team, which will launch its activities in 2015, including supporting a new range of absolute return fixed income products.

Russ Oxley has been appointed head of Fixed Income Absolute Return Team, and be joined by Huw Davies, Joshua Heming, Adam Purzitsky, Paul Shanta and Jin Wong. The new team members have previously worked at Ignis Asset Management.

Oxley will report to Julian Ide, CEO of Old Mutual Global Investors.

OMGI currently has a nine strong Fixed Income Team, headed by Christine Johnson, who reports to Stewart Cowley, investment director, Fixed Income and Macro. That team will remain in place.

Ide said: “This is a very exciting development for Old Mutual Global Investors.  By adding the investment skills of this new team to our existing highly regarded team, we will have one of the asset management industry’s most powerful fixed income operations.  I look forward to working with all of this invigorated team next year.”

The manager has made a number of appointments over the past couple of years as it targets a top five market position in the UK, as well as expanding into other markets.
