London-based specialist fixed-income and currency asset manager Augustus Asset Managers has appointed Alex McKnight as a portfolio manager on the JB Convertible Hedge Fund.
Before joining Augustus, McKnight was a senior convertible bond trader at AIB Global Treasury as part of a seven-person unit running a proprietary bond investment book, in a trader/analyst role, with responsibility for European convertible bonds.
“We are committed to adding talent and growing the convertible assets at Augustus, and recruiting people of Alex's calibre is a key part of that process,” said Edward Dove, the firm's president.
Augustus currently manages some US$8 billion in long only funds and hedge funds.
