Cameron Hume Expands Offering with Two Senior Hires

EDINBURGH, UK, March 12, 2020 – Leading fixed-income investment manager, Edinburgh-based Cameron Hume Ltd has announced the appointment of Brian Jack as Head of Money Markets and Andy Kelly as Business Development Manager.

With its first hire, Cameron Hume is expanding its offering to clients by launching a cash business. Brian Jack, formerly Head of Treasury at Kames Capital has been appointed to head up this new development. Brian has a track-record of building and growing Cash and short duration fixed income businesses at Ignis and SWIP and achieving excellent fund performance.

“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,” said Brian. “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.”

Cameron Hume’s second hire is Andy Kelly. Andy has a long and impressive record in the industry having held senior positions in Barclays, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, Legal & General Investment Management and most recently Kames Capital, where he was Head of Liquidity Sales for three years.

Andy said: “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.

“Our vision for Cameron Hume is to be the leading provider of responsible and sustainable fixed income and cash management solutions.”
