Artemis hires fifth member of Kames bond team

Artemis has announced a fifth member of its new fixed income team, hiring Jack Holmes (pictured) from Kames Capital.

The announcement comes after Artemis poached four members of Kames’ fixed income team in December.

Holmes has been an investment manager on the Kames fixed income team since September 2016. Before that he was at Standard Life Investments as an analyst on the European high yield team. He will join Artemis on 26 June.

Artemis is also set to launch a new Ucits fund. The Short-Dated Global High Yield Bond fund will be managed by ex-Kames managers David Ennett and Stephen Baines, who both joined Artemis last year.

Artemis currently has two bond funds in its range: the Artemis High Income and Strategic Bond funds, managed by Alex Ralph and James Foster.

Kames announced Holmes was leaving the business earlier this week, which it combined with news of the hire of Thomas Hanson from Janus Henderson. 

Artemis’ head of distribution, Jasper Berens, said: ‘We’re delighted to have attracted a manager of Jack’s ability and experience. This strengthens our new fixed income team even further.

‘New funds for the team, such as our imminent Short-Dated Global High Yield Bond fund, will complement our existing offerings in fixed income and meet our clients’ needs.’
