RWC bolsters A-rated star’s $1.2bn convertible team

RWC bolsters A-rated star’s $1.2bn convertible team

RWC has bolstered Citywire A-rated Davide Basile's convertible bonds team with a new hire, the company has announced.

Justin Craib-Cox joins the firm from Aviva Investors, where he spent six years on the convertible team. He previously worked in the same sector at M&G.

The team currently manages funds such as the RWC Global Convertibles fund, and is ultimately responsible for around £860 billion in client assets.

Basile (pictured) said: ‘We are seeing significantly increased interest in the convertibles asset class as the rate and volatility environment provide a compelling backdrop for using convertible funds in diversified portfolios.

‘We see renewed opportunities within the asset class and Craib-Cox’s experience in analysis, portfolio management, and client interactions, will provide a significant enhancement to the team’s ability to grow and take advantage of the market environment.’
