In her new role, Dall'Angelo will be in charge of providing macroeconomic analysis and commentary, non-standard macro modelling and develop relationships with key central banks and monetary authorities.
She will be based in the firm’s London office and report to Eoin Murray, the firm’s head of investment.
Dall'Angelo arrives just as the investment manager’s group chief economist Williams (pictured), who has been with the firm for eight years, is preparing to depart for New Zealand.
Portfolio Adviser understands that Williams is due to leave some time before the end of 2017. The firm has said he will work as a senior economic adviser remotely.
Prior to joining Hermes, Dall’Angelo spent 10 years at Prologue Capital, most recently working as a global economist responsible for the team’s macro view.
She holds a Master of Science in Economic and Social Sciences as well as a Bachelor in Economic and Social Sciences from Bocconi University in Italy.
Murray said of the appointment: “Hermes operates at an extremely high standard; committed to delivering holistic returns – outcomes for its clients that go far beyond the financial. With global financial markets experiencing challenging times and geopolitical unrest ever present, Silvia’s insight, knowledge and expertise will be a tremendous asset to the business.”
