Jamieson Coote Bonds adds Senior Portfolio Manager to its investment team

November 16, 2021

James Wilson has joined the high grade fixed income specialist investment team as Senior Portfolio Manager, working alongside Chief Investment Officer Charlie Jamieson, based in Melbourne.

James joins from VFMC where he was most recently Senior Portfolio Manager, Fixed Interest and Absolute Returns, managing global and domestic active fixed income portfolios. Prior to that James spent seven and half years at ANZ as a senior rates trader in Sydney and London. It was at ANZ that James first worked alongside Executive Director, Angus Coote. James brings with him more than 15 years' experience across domestic and global fixed income markets. He is also a member of the finance committee for not-for-profit charitable organisation, Bayley House.

Jamieson Coote Bonds Chief Investment Officer, Charlie Jamieson said:

"We're very proud of the outcomes we have been able to deliver for our clients to date and we are keen to enhance and grow our offering. The appointment of James is another important investment in our business and will strengthen our team approach and ensure we are best placed to continue to deliver strong returns for our investors.”

Senior Portfolio Manager James Wilson said: “I am excited to be joining the team at Jamieson Coote Bonds at a time when the business is growing its retail and institutional footprint and portfolio breadth. Jamieson Coote Bonds has rapidly become one of the most respected brands in the domestic fixed income market and I am very much looking forward to being a part of the journey going forward.”

Co-founders Charlie Jamieson and Angus Coote launched Jamieson Coote Bonds in 2013 to enable investors to access disaggregated exposure to high grade fixed income and now manages A$5 billion on behalf of superannuation funds, wholesale and retail investors (as at 31 October 2021). The most recent strategy − a global absolute return high grade fixed income strategy – is performing well despite the wider negative headline performance numbers of bonds and has amassed A$500m in funds under management in a short time, since its inception in December 2019. In addition to its Melbourne investment team, Deputy Chief Investment Officer Kate Samranvedhya, and Assistant Portfolio Manager Ben Wang reside in its Singapore office. Jamieson Coote Bonds is backed by non-investment services partner Channel Capital.
