AMP Capital’s Fixed Income team has been expanding its reach in line with the changing investment environment through additional international mandates and enhanced capabilities. Fixed income teams are now located in AMP Capital’s Chicago and Hong Kong offices and clients are able to access international exposure through AMP Capital’s global fixed income funds and absolute return funds.

Commenting on the appointment, Mr Beardow said: “Simon has impeccable investment credentials and proven leadership skills, demonstrated by his previous role as Head of Macro Markets. His appointment also reflects the depth of investment talent at AMP Capital, which we are committed to fostering as part of our succession planning processes.

“Simon’s passion for pursuing outstanding investment outcomes for our clients and his broad global investment experience leave him well placed to lead the Fixed Income team as it seeks to build its growing global profile.”
