Fixed-income boutique Smarter Money Investments (SMI) has appointed a credit analyst and strategist to assist its investment team.
Andrew McLachlan, a former credit strategist at Australian fixed-income manager Vianova between 2008 and 2013 and its successor Brookline Partners during 2014 and 2015, will commence his new role at SMI on 25 May 2015.
Mr McLachlan will be responsible for managing SMI’s active cash and active credit strategies as part of a seven-person team, which includes two full-time portfolio managers, two full-time credit analysts and three part-time analysts.
In his role at Brookline Partners, Mr McLachlan was responsible for all quantitative and qualitative credit analysis and valuation, as well as having input into macroeconomic strategy.
Prior to Vianova, Mr McLachlan was a senior credit analyst at the $6 billion fixed-income fund manager Perennial Investment Partners, where he designed and implemented the in-house credit risk pricing models.
“I have over 15 years buy-side experience analysing Australian and indeed overseas credits from a bottom-up and top-down perspective and built and maintained the credit process at Perennial, Vianova and Brookline,” said Mr McLachlan.
