Kames adds to high yield team again

Holmes joins from Standard Life Investments where he was an analyst on its European high yield team covering a variety of sectors including general industrials, waste and recycling and oil & gas services.

His appointment follows the recruitment of David Ennett who recently joined from SLI as Head of High Yield, and the return of Phil Milburn to the business after a period of ill health. Holmes will report in to Ennett.

Head of fixed income David Roberts said: “The appointment of Jack to our team further strengthens our high yield capabilities and, coupled with the recent return of Phil and the appointment of David, I would say that Kames now has one of the most experienced and recognised high yield franchises across the UK and Europe.”

The Kames High Yield Bond Fund has won the Portfolio Adviser Platinum Award in the High Yield Bond category for four consecutive years.
