Quilter Investors has hired Helen Bradshaw from Janus Henderson to work on a new multi-asset income range due to launch in the summer.
Bradshaw was previously a fund manager on the multi-asset team at Janus Henderson. Quilter Investors is aiming to launch two risk-targeted multi-asset portfolios for Bradshaw. The portfolios will invest in funds, derivatives, equities, bonds, alternatives and investment trusts.
The portfolios will be available to advisers on Quilter’s platform as well as other third-party platforms.
Bradshaw said: ‘I’m really excited to be joining this fast-growing, ambitious business. There is already a wide range of expertise across the investment desk, and by bringing my own knowledge and experience to the group I believe we have a fantastic opportunity ahead of us as Quilter Investors expands into multi-asset income.’
Chief commercial officer Dean Bowden added: ‘We’re really excited to announce the forthcoming launch of our new income range and we look forward to sharing more details over the coming months.
‘Helen joins us with an excellent track record in multi-asset income and has extensive experience managing income solutions for advised customers.’
The £17.1 billion stand-alone multi-asset investment division was formally renamed and relaunched in June 2018.
Its range of multi-asset investment solutions including Cirilium, Generation, Creation and the sub-advised funds within WealthSelect now carry the new brand and Quilter Investors prefix.
Last year, it announced a series of senior hires to its management team in May ahead of the rebrand.
Among other hires, new chief risk officer Fiona Woodhouse joined from Janus Henderson, while Daniella Johnston switched from Aberdeen Standard Investments as head of marketing. Alex Risby also joined from Royal London Asset Management as head of IT.
In other hires, Matt Leary was recruited from Brown Advisory as head of operations and Maziar Alamouti joined from Agilis Investment Management as head of dealing.
