Wiltshire Pension Fund appoints Loomis Sayles to manage GBP200m mandate

RELATED TOPICS​

Loomis, Sayles & Company has been selected to manage a GBP 200 million diversified fixed income mandate on behalf of the Wiltshire Pension Fund, representing approximately 10% of the total pension scheme assets. 

The mandate will be allocated evenly between two strategies: Loomis Sayles Strategic Alpha and Loomis Sayles World Credit Asset.

“This appointment reflects our continued commitment to bringing investors high quality fixed income solutions which seek to produce strong returns, whilst managing volatility. We look forward to a successful partnership with the Wiltshire Pension Fund.”

Loomis Sayles Strategic Alpha, an absolute return fixed income fund, pursues attractive returns across global markets in both rising and falling interest rate environments through the use of non-traditional investment techniques. Loomis Sayles World Credit Asset, a global multi-asset credit strategy, seeks returns from multiple sources of global credit. The objective of the Pension Fund’s credit portfolio is return generation and to diversify returns away from equities, whilst these strategies were selected to additionally seek stability against possible interest rate rises, and the potential for low or negative returns from UK bonds.

The Strategic Alpha strategy is managed by Matthew Eagan, Kevin Kearns and Todd Vandam, and the World Credit Asset strategy is managed by Tom Fahey and Kevin Kearns. The managers have an average of 23 years of investment experience between them and over 90 years of combined experience.

Commenting on the appointment, Jeff Seaver, Managing Director, Loomis Sayles Investments Limited, says: “This appointment reflects our continued commitment to bringing investors high quality fixed income solutions which seek to produce strong returns, whilst managing volatility. We look forward to a successful partnership with the Wiltshire Pension Fund.”
