Atlantic House Investments (AHI) has promoted Mark Greenwood to deputy CIO and head of investment risk, with immediate effect, less than a year after he joined the team from Merian Global Investors as a portfolio manager.
The firm which specialises in defined returns investments, said Greenwood’s new roles recognise his “experience and expertise in derivative investing and his efforts to further strengthen the firm’s risk management processes and modelling”.
Greenwood joined AHI in November 2021 from Merian Global Investors, where he had managed the Merian Systematic Positive Skew Fund since 2017. Before moving to investment management, Greenwood had a decade-long career as a trader on the inflation desks at Barclays and NatWest and managed the inflation desk at Rand Merchant Bank in South Africa.
In addition to the roles above, Greenwood will also co-lead the management of the Atlantic House Total Return Fund and is a named portfolio manager on several of the firm’s other funds and mandates.
He will continue to report to CIO Tom May, who said: “Mark’s background as an actuary, his detailed understanding of risk, analytical thinking, and expertise in derivative investing – especially inflation and fixed income derivatives – has brought a fresh perspective to our team, which is recognised in this promotion. In his new role as deputy CIO, the firm will continue to benefit from his thorough and robust risk modelling and management and his unique investment insights.”
Tony Stenning, CEO of Atlantic House Group, added: “We continue to grow the AHI business in our mission to provide our clients and investors with investment solutions for a more predictable financial future. Mark’s promotion to deputy CIO is further demonstration of our commitment to increasing the strength and depth of expertise within the company and continue to maintain a focus on ensuring any risk within our portfolios remains intentional, sufficiently rewarded and in keeping with our clients’ expectations.
“Alongside CIO Tom May, his input into the oversight of the investment team and the management of our range of funds will be invaluable.”
