Aviva Investors has announced the appointment of Emma Halley as head of investment process for multi-asset and macro.
In the new role, Halley would be responsible for generation, structuring and completion of new ideas in Aviva Investors’ multi-asset portfolios, with a focus on its Multi-Strategy (AIMS) range.
She would also be responsible for maximising collaboration across investment teams by co-ordinating key areas of focus for discussion at the multi-strategy team’s weekly investment meetings as well as the firm-wide strategic group investment forum.
Based in London, she would report to Peter Fitzgerald, chief investment officer of multi-asset and macro.
“Her appointment follows the changes we made to our investment platform last year, establishing a combined multi-asset and macro function and materially increasing our equity capabilities,” Fitzgerald said.
“We believe we are now starting to see the benefit of the improved idea generation that has resulted from this across the portfolios.”
She joined from Fulcrum Asset Management where she was head of portfolio management, responsible for the consistent application of investment process across over $4.5 billion in absolute return strategies.
Prior to this, she spent four years in the global fixed income team at Schroders.
