Edinburgh-based investment manager Cameron Hume Ltd has announced two senior appointments, with Brian Jack taking up the role as head of money markets and Andy Kelly joining the team as business development manager.

By hiring Mr Jack, the company is expanding its offering to clients by launching a cash business. Mr Jack, who was formerly head of treasury at Kames Capital, has been appointed to run this new project.

He has a proven track -record of establishing and growing cash and short duration fixed income businesses at Ignis and SWIP, Bdaily News reports.

Mr Kelly has extensive experience in the industry having held senior positions in Barclays, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, Legal & General Investment Management and Kames Capital, where he held the role of head of liquidity sales for three years.

Mr Jack said: “I was keen to join Cameron Hume because it rightfully treats cash as a natural extension of fixed income, it focuses solely on fixed income and aims to do it really well. The innovative culture and quality of the people were also real positives and I believe that this means that we are uniquely placed to offer clients something genuinely different.”

Mr Kelly added: “Cameron Hume is a fixed income specialist manager with a highly skilled and experienced investment team. The business is forward-thinking and strongly committed to being a leading responsible investment manager, having embedded ESG factors into the investment process.

“I see this as a great opportunity to demonstrate value and give investors a more tailored service with solutions that are right for them. Cameron Hume, as an owner-managed and independent fixed income investment manager, offers a unique platform to help me do this.”

Chris Torkington, managing director of Cameron Hume, said: “It is great to have Andy and Brian joining us at Cameron Hume. They are hugely experienced and knowledgeable and will help us drive the business forward. They get the culture of our business, which is all about listening to our clients, understanding what they need from their fixed income investment manager, and delivering in a transparent and cost-effective way.”
