UK - Investec Asset Management has strengthened its fixed income team with the appointment of Russell Silberston as a portfolio manager.
Silberston will re-join Investec, where he worked between 1995 and 2001, after a stint as a fixed income portfolio manager managing money market funds and non-sterling short dated cash plus funds for Cazenove Fund Management.
Based in London, Silberston will report to John Stopford, head of fixed income, and will be part of a 27-strong team that manages more than £12bn in fixed income and liquidity assets.
Meanwhile, specialist asset manager and solution provider, Cairn Capital, has hired James Starky as chief legal officer and member of its executive management team.
Starky joins from Banque AIG, the European subsidiary of AIG Financial Products, where he was the associate general counsel in charge of the legal group for Europe and Asia covering derivatives, capital markets and structured finance business.
Paul Campbell, Cairn Capital director, said: “James’s experience as a senior counsel at a major structured finance participant following periods as a partner at top US and UK law firms is unparalleled.”
Cairn also appointed Luke Venables as head of middle office and operations. Venables joins next month from Goldman Sachs, where he performed the same role for its European Credit Derivatives business.
