Amoasi joins bfinance from Goldman Sachs Asset Management in London, where he worked as a product manager covering multi-sector and absolute return fixed income strategies. Prior to Goldman Sachs, Amoasi was an account associate at PIMCO, servicing UK and European institutional clients.

Announcing the appointments today, Derek Williams, head of private markets research at bfinance, said, "We are delighted to have someone of Witold’s calibre join our team.
