Lombard Odier Investment Managers appoints Head of UK Institutional

Lombard Odier Investment Managers has today announced the appointment of Tammy McPherson as Head of UK Institutional Business Development.

Based in London, Tammy will be responsible for raising the profile of the institutional business with DB pension schemes and insurers, and building on Lombard Odier IM’s existing UK client base.

Tammy joins from Aviva Investors where she was Head of Insurance Business Development UK. In this role she was responsible for delivering outcome-oriented investment solutions for UK institutional clients. Prior to this she worked at ABN AMRO Asset Management, with a focus on insurance asset management.

Carolina Minio-Paluello, Global Head of Sales at Lombard Odier IM, commented:
“Institutional investors are facing considerable challenges in the current climate. Ongoing market volatility, regulatory changes and a low yield environment are just some of the pressures for investors tackling rising deficit levels. As a result, pension schemes and insurers are increasingly looking for investment solutions to reduce costs and maximise returns.

“Tammy brings a strong solutions background and considerable experience to our UK institutional business. She will be instrumental in growing our institutional capabilities to provide bespoke investment solutions in the competitive and complex UK market.”
