Schroders appoints two new members to Multi-Asset team


Schroders is delighted to announce the addition of two new members to the Australian Multi-Asset team, adding experience and strategic capability from across the Asia Pacific region.

Sebastian Mullins will join the team in February 2019 in the role of Portfolio Manager, Multi-Asset. Sebastian joins from Nikko Asset Management in Singapore where he was Senior Portfolio Manager responsible for Nikko’s Singapore-domiciled Multi-Asset funds. He brings a range of skills as well as direct experience in Asian assets. Sebastian holds a Master in Applied Finance (Distinction) from Macquarie University as well as Bachelor of Science (Honours) – Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Bath in the UK.

Sebastian will initially be based in Singapore, before moving permanently to Australia in 2019. He will work closely with Simon Doyle and Simon Stevenson on managing the team’s Multi-Asset portfolios.

Dr Roland Winn will join the team in early December as a part-time advisor in the role of Investment Strategist, Multi-Asset.

Roland was most recently Manager Investment Analysis/Senior Investment Strategist for the Guardians of New Zealand Super (NZ Super) before moving to Australia in 2017. Prior to this he held the role of Portfolio Manager – Global Equities at Hunter Hall, and Head – Research Strategy for CP2 (formerly Capital Partners), managing listed and unlisted infrastructure. Roland lectures in Investment and Credit Analysis at Macquarie University.

This is a new role within the Multi-Asset team, one where Roland will focus primarily on the provision of independent investment ideas for the team’s portfolios and to help enhance existing processes. Roland will act primarily in an advisory capacity.

Both Sebastian and Roland will report directly to Simon Doyle, Head of Fixed Income and Multi-Asset. Reporting lines and responsibilities for the Fixed Income team are unaffected, with the overall Australian Fixed Income and Multi-Asset team organisational structure remaining unchanged.

“I’m delighted that Sebastian and Roland will be joining the team. Our primary aim is to ensure we continue to make the best investment decisions we can for our clients both now and into the future,” Simon Doyle said.

“Sebastian and Roland are highly capable investors with different experiences and investment expertise, which will help ensure we continue to challenge and develop our investment thinking. They’re both enthusiastic about the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing success of our Multi-Asset capability, and I look forward to working with them.”
