BMO GAM bolsters LDI team

TeamBMO Global Asset Management has expanded its liability-driven investment (LDI) team with two further hires, following the addition of Simon Bentley earlier this year.

Max Peacock joins BMO as LDI portfolio manager from Legal and General Investment Management, where he was responsible for structuring large swap and swaption-based interest rate hedging mandates for pension schemes. Now Peacock will be responsible for portfolio management of liability hedging mandates for pension schemes at BMO.

Arthur Stroij joins the firm as LDI solution structurer from Towers Watson, where he was responsible for designing, implementing and monitoring hedge solutions for institutional investors. At BMO, Stroij will be working with the LDI portfolio managers to design liability hedging and derivative solutions for clients.

Both will report to Alex Soulsby, head of LDI, who says: “Max and Arthur’s experience in liability-driven investments will make an invaluable contribution to the LDI team as we continue on our strong growth trajectory.”
