Fortem Capital has appointed Toby Hayes as its new head of multi-asset management.

The company's latest appointee (pictured) brings 18 years' worth of financial industry experience to the new role.

Hayes was previously a multi-asset manager at Franklin Templeton, where he ran a number of alternative and multi-asset funds, including the UK-distributed Franklin Global Multi-Asset Income fund.

Fortem Capital founding director Ed Senior said: ‘Toby’s experience and reputation in the market are unparalleled. He brings with him a vast level of knowledge and experience in areas such as risk premia and factor investing.

'Moreover, the board is fully convinced that his strong working knowledge of derivatives and multi asset investing make him a perfect fit to the team.’

Hayes previously worked at Pacific Investments, where he was was a partner. He was also a founding partner at multi-asset boutique Armstrong Investment Managers, where he oversaw global multi-asset portfolios.

Fortem Capital's new head of multi-asset management also held numerous multi-asset roles at UBS Wealth Management. He also managed Insight's Diversified Target Return fund.

Earlier this month, Sonal Desai was handed a series of fund roles in preparation for her appointment as Franklin Templeton's bond division CIO.
