UK- Aegon Asset Management has hired Stephen Jones as a fixed income portfolio manager, luring him from rival Britannic Asset Management.
Prior to his move to Edinburgh-based Aegon, Jones managed corporate bond investments across a range of Britannic’s retail and institutional funds. Whilst he primarily worked with sterling bonds, Jones also managed euro and dollar denominated bonds.
Before joining Britannic, Jones spent 10 years at Greenwich Natwest. As head of syndicate, he ran the new issue underwriting and syndicate desk and was involved in raising debt for both UK and European issuers.
Malcolm Jones, head of Aegon’s fixed income team: We are delighted to welcome Stephen on board. Stephen has extensive and wide-ranging experience of the market and this will prove invaluable going forward.
