Kames expands fixed income team with SLI hire


Jack Holmes has followed his former Standard Life Investments colleague David Ennett to Kames Capital where he has been appointed as an investment manager on its high yield bond team.

He will report into Ennett, who quit SLI earlier this year and swiftly joined Kames as head of high yield.

Kames head of fixed income investment strategy, Phil Milburn, also recently re-joined the firm after a period of ill health.

Previously Holmes was an analyst on SLI’s covering a variety of sectors including general industrials, waste and recycling and oil and gas services.

Kames head of fixed income David Roberts says: “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.”
