Hermes has beefed up its risk management team with a pair of hires.
The firm appointed Daniel Roff head of risk and quantitative solutions for fixed-income, and Stuart Woodyatt as director of operational risk.
Roff joins from Legal & General Investment Management, where he was head of investment risk management, while Woodyatt was previously group risk manager at London and Capital Group.

Hermes currently manages £35.5 billion (US$62 billion) in alternatives and equity products. The firm is owned by the BT Pension Scheme.
