BNP Paribas Investment Partners (BNPP IP) has appointed Matt Joyce as a portfolio manager within its multi asset solutions division, headed by Charles Janssen.
Based in London, Joyce will join the active asset allocation team led by CIO Colin Graham.
Joyce joins from Schroders IM where he worked as a multi asset analyst and fund manager. He was focusing on equity and cross asset volatility research, and managing balanced products and volatility strategies.
Prior to that, Joyce held positions at Occam Asset Management as analyst and fund manager covering European equities, and at Polar Capital, where he was an analyst on UK and global equity long/short strategies.
Charles Janssen, head of Multi Asset Solutions at BNPP IP, commented: “The addition of Matt Joyce to the Multi Asset Solutions group further demonstrates our commitment to expanding our multi asset offering as part of the strategic development of our business.
“Demand for multi asset products continues to grow in line with the increasing need for retirement solutions among retail and institutional investors and this is a key part of BNP Paribas Investment Partners’ investment offering.
“Given the ongoing environment of market uncertainty and low yields, we expect continued growing demand as investors look to outsource their asset allocation to meet their growth or income requirements.”
