Quilter Investors recruits Helen Bradshaw to spearhead new multi-asset income launch
- Helen Bradshaw joins as portfolio manager
- Multi-asset income portfolios to launch summer 2019
Quilter Investors is today pleased to announce the appointment of Helen Bradshaw to lead the development of a new multi-asset income range launching later this year.
Helen joins Quilter Investors with more than 15 years of industry experience, and was most recently a fund manager at Janus Henderson in their award-winning multi-asset investment team. She has extensive experience managing multi-asset income portfolios targeted at the UK adviser market.
Quilter Investors is in the process of designing the new range, and expects to initially launch two risk-targeted multi-asset portfolios in summer 2019.
The portfolios will employ a diverse investment toolkit, including investments in external fund managers, derivatives, direct investment in equities and fixed income, alternatives and investment trusts.
The portfolios will be distributed through financial advisers and will be available through Quilter’s own UK investment platform, as well as other third party platforms.
Further details on the design and specifications of the portfolios; their aims and objectives; IA sector classifications; name & branding; and investment toolkit will be announced later in the year.
“I’m really excited to be joining this fast-growing, ambitious business. There is already a wide range of expertise across the investment desk, and by bringing my own knowledge and experience to the group I believe we have a fantastic opportunity ahead of us as Quilter Investors expands into multi-asset income.
“In an environment where global central banks are tightening money supply and raising rates, the search for income is set to shift materially and I’m excited about the opportunity to deploy a diverse and sophisticated investment toolkit at Quilter Investors.”
Quilter Investors Chief Commercial Officer Dean Bowden says:
“We’re really excited to announce the forthcoming launch of our new income range and we look forward to sharing more details over the coming months. Helen joins us with an excellent track record in multi-asset income and has extensive experience managing income solutions for advised customers.
“Quilter Investors has a strong pedigree in building compelling multi-asset portfolio solutions and is one of the fastest growing providers in the UK. Thanks to our position as part of the Quilter, we believe we are in a fantastic position to design and build an attractive income solution tailored around the needs of advised clients.”
