Liontrust recruits Michael Mabbutt as head of global credit

RELATED TOPICS​

Michael Mabbutt is to join Liontrust in January 2013 as head of a newly formed global credit division.



Following Mabbutt’s (pictured) appointment, Liontrust is to launch a Dublin-based Global Strategic Bond Fund in the New Year, subject to appropriate regulatory approvals.

Mabbutt has a long and successful track record of managing global credit funds. He is currently a consulting partner at Thames River Capital and was previously head of the global credit division at Thames River, head of emerging market debt at LGT Asset Management and head of emerging market debt at Baring Asset Management.

At Thames River, Mabbutt was the lead fund manager of the Thames River Hillside Apex Fund (a Cayman Islands hedge fund) and the Thames River High Income Fund (a Dublin Ucits fund).

“Michael is an excellent addition to our already strong fund management capability,” says John Ions, chief executive at Liontrust. “He has a long, proven track record of delivering strong performance for the investors in the funds that he has managed and sees the opportunity in the current economic and market environment to continue that at Liontrust. Michael’s appointment diversifies our offering away from our focus on equities into global credit, enabling us to further deepen and expand our distribution capability in the UK and internationally.”

Mabbutt says: “The global credit and currency markets appear to be distorted by, amongst other things, central bank intervention. A moderation, or reversal, of such intervention one day might affect different areas of these markets in different ways. A Global Strategic Bond Fund that has the flexibility to invest across all areas of the global credit and currency markets should be an advantage.”
