By Daniel Lanyon on 31st October 2017


The firm invests in private debt, mainly in Europe, among other asset classes popular with institutions.

 

Asset manager Robeco, which invests in private debt among other asset classes, has appointed Paul Jeffries as executive director for business development.

 

Robeco is looking to enlarge its footprint among institutional investors and Jefferies will work with UK and Ireland-based clients, which currently includes: insurance, public and corporate pension schemes and fiduciary managers.

 

He will be based in Robeco’s London office and report to Peter Walsh, Head of Robeco UK.

 

Prior to joining Robeco, Paul held a similar position at AQR Capital Management. Before that he was an investment manager with the Railway Pension Fund, where he was responsible for selecting and monitoring external fund managers.

 

Peter Walsh, Head of Robeco UK said, “Paul's technical strength and client-centric approach makes him an excellent fit for Robeco and everyone is very excited to have him on board. His professionalism and highly respected reputation in the UK will boost our efforts to grow further in this strategically important market. We have strong momentum to grow our London operations, building upon our key capabilities in the areas of sustainability integration, credit, emerging market and quantitative investing.”

 

Robeco UK currently employs 14 people and has £6bn in assets under management from UK clients.
