Independent investment management firm Brown Advisory announced today the appointment of three portfolio managers, Chris Diaz, Ryan Myerberg, and Colby Stilson, for the launch of a new team responsible for global sustainable fixed income strategies. The firm stated that the launch comes amidst increasing client demand for global fixed income solutions that employ integrated ESG analysis as part of a robust sustainable investment process.
Amy Hauter, Portfolio Manager and Head of U.S. Sustainable Fixed Income at Brown Advisory, said:
“We believe that we can play a valuable role in helping our clients align their long-term investment goals with their values, and that sustainable investing principles are well-suited for fixed income investing from both a performance and impact perspective.”
Diaz, Myerberg and Stilson previously worked together to build Janus Capital’s global fixed income business. Diaz most recently served as Co-Head Global Bonds at Janus Henderson. Myerberg left Janus in 2019, and has been serving as Head of Absolute Return Fixed Income at Amundi. Stilson joins Brown Advisory after serving as Partner, COO & CFO at the TIFIN Group.
Logie Fitzwilliams, Head of International Business and Global Head of Sales at Brown Advisory, said:
“We are delighted that we could bring this team back together to join us at Brown Advisory. The trio will bring a new global sustainable fixed income strategy to market later this year, combining many of Brown Advisory’s established fundamental and sustainable research methods, with their own extensive expertise.”
“Chris, Colby, and I are thrilled to be joining Brown Advisory. We are excited to be working together again at an investment organization where we feel our values and aspirations are aligned—we believe Brown Advisory’s employee-ownership structure and significant existing expertise in sustainable investing, that is embedded in the firm’s DNA, will allow us to develop global, long-term, client-focused solutions with a meaningful and differentiated ESG lens.”
