Tim Leslie, CIO of JCAM commented that “Mary has unparalleled insight into the key macro factors impacting global markets. The core of our investment approach is investing in companies. Mary’s involvement will enhance our ability to evaluate how these macro themes affect corporate fundamentals and markets, enabling us to trade in underlying credit and securities.”
