- Appointment shows commitment to Multi-Asset Solutions in U.S. reflecting its strong growth
- Fund provides global tactical allocation through traditional and alternative asset classes
NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2011 -- Schroders, the $286.1 billion* global asset manager, today announced the hire of Michael Radin, CFA, as a key member of the Multi-Asset Solutions investment team supporting the Americas. Mr. Radin, Head of Multi-Asset Solutions, Americas, will have a functional reporting line to John McLaughlin, Global Head of Multi-Asset Solutions, as well as a local reporting line to Jamie Dorrien-Smith, Chief Executive Officer, Americas. Mr. Radin will be based in New York and will be responsible for working closely with the sales and consultant teams to drive the growth of the multi-asset team's business in the region, serving as the primary investment resource in external business development, as well as servicing existing client activities.
"Michael brings an impressive depth of experience in multi-asset solutions. He is an outstanding choice to provide true value to prospects and clients alike as Schroders continues growing our multi-asset solution market share. His appointment significantly strengthens our dedicated focus on the investment community and fully supports our ongoing efforts to increase investor awareness and understanding of our broad range of investment solutions," said Mr. Jamie Dorrien-Smith, Schroders Chief Executive Officer, Americas.
Schroders also announced the three-year anniversary for the Schroder Multi-Asset Growth Portfolio (Investor shares: SIDNX, Advisor shares: SALVX, A shares: SALAX). The fund seeks to outperform global equities, but with lower volatility through a combination of 1) exposure to a diversified range of traditional and alternative asset classes 2) dynamic asset allocation across markets in response to changing market conditions and the economic cycle 3) specialist management within the underlying asset classes via investment in proprietary and non-proprietary funds.
Schroders has over $44billion* of multi-asset solutions under management. Its London-based Multi-Asset team comprises over 60 investment professionals including research analysts and fund managers. In the U.S., Schroders' Multi-Asset Growth Portfolio includes traditional and alternative investments and is available through financial intermediaries such as wirehouses, independent broker/dealers and registered investment advisors for retail accounts, as well as through fee-based wrap, retirement and institutional accounts.
"We are delighted the fund has reached its three year anniversary which is a widely recognized milestone within the industry. Since its launch, we have witnessed tremendous growth in the U.S. for multi-asset mandates as more and more investors seek a single solution offering dynamic asset allocation across a range of traditional and non-traditional asset classes, and access to both proprietary and non-proprietary managers. A major impetus driving demand has been the growth within the sub-advised arena, as this type of mandate becomes more accessible to retail investors," added Mr. Dorrien-Smith. Schroders currently has $2.7 billion in multi-asset managed assets across its existing relationships in the U.S. (as of December 31, 2010).
Mr. Radin joins Schroders from Deutsche Bank's asset management division where he held roles of Head of Pension & Portfolio Solutions and Global Head of Quantitative Strategies Product Specialist Team. Previously, Michael worked at both Morgan Stanley, as senior relationship manager for institutional clients and at Chrysler Motors, where he was responsible for asset allocation & strategy, public security managers and risk management for the firm's corporate and trust investments.
