Kames Capital has promoted Stephen Snowden and Adrian Hull, previously head of credit and senior fixed income investment specialist, respectively, as co-heads of fixed income.

The promotions come after David Roberts, the company’s previous head of fixed income, and former head of investment strategy Phil Milburn left to join rival Liontrust Asset Management. Between them, the two were managers or co-managers on six bond funds at Kames.

Snowden will remain co-manager of the company’s Kames Absolute Return Bond Fund alongside Colin Finlayson and the Investment Grade Bond and Investment Grade Global Bond funds alongside Euan McNeil.

Edinburgh-based Kames traces its history back to the 1831 founding of Scottish Equitable Assurance Society, which rebranded to Aegon Asset Management in 2001 and renamed its UK investment management arm as Kames Capital in 2011. The firm managed £44.5 billion on behalf of wealth managers, financial advisers, family offices, pension funds, financial institutions, government agencies and individuals as of June 30, 2017.
