Muzinich & Co has hired Simon Males as Managing Director, Head of Institutional Business, effective this winter.
In this newly-created role, Males will be responsible for the growth and development of the firm’s UK institutional client base and consultant relationships and will report directly to George Muzinich, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
“I am delighted to be joining such a well-established and respected corporate credit specialist,” says Males. “Public and private debt will remain integral to institutional client portfolios. Pension funds, insurance companies and other institutional clients will continue to seek out solutions-oriented providers offering fixed income diversification and higher-yielding strategies to meet their liability and cash flow needs. Muzinich is renowned for its institutionally-focused approach to credit selection and I am looking forward to working with the management team to further expand and enhance these capabilities.”
“We are very pleased to welcome Simon to the firm and look forward to working with him very closely as we further develop our institutional business in the UK,” says George Muzinich (pictured). “Simon shares our strong belief in the importance of nurturing long-term client relationships based on trust and value-added performance.”
Males joins from Legal & General Investment Management where he was Head of Global Fixed Income Distribution. Prior to that he was Managing Director, Institutional Client Relations at Pramerica Fixed Income and before that spent five years as Head of Institutional Business at Pictet Asset Management.
