Cameron Hume recruits senior fixed income specialist.

Edinburgh-based fixed income manager Cameron Hume has recruited a senior industry specialist as it seeks to grow its investment management capacity.


Russ Oxley will work with the firm on a consultancy contract agreed with his Edinburgh-based management company Avrox Investment Solutions.

Oxley was previously Head of Fixed Income Absolute Return at Old Mutual Global Investors. He joined from Ignis Asset Management where his team managed more than £4billion of assets for its Absolute Return Government Bond fund as well as substantial assets in LDI and other rates mandates.

His role will be to develop strategic investment ideas as part of Cameron Hume’s investment team.

He said: “I’m delighted to be joining Cameron Hume at such an exciting stage in their evolution.

“They are a small but highly ambitious asset management firm and I’m confident I can assist in helping them as they move to the next level of their development.”

Cameron Hume, founded in 2011 by Guy Cameron, a former partner at Baillie Gifford and Christian Torkington, who held senior roles at Barclays, Standard Life and Scottish Widows, currently manages US$700million on behalf of Sanlam, one of South Africa’s biggest insurers.

It recently signed distribution agreements with Melbourne-based AFM Investment Partners and with Nordicus Capital, which operates out of Stockholm.

Torkington said: “This is a very exciting time for Cameron Hume. Russ’ experience and expertise will be invaluable to our continued progression.”
