On April 12th and 13th Funds Society will host its fifth Investments & Golf Summit 2018. Sponsors include Janus Henderson Investors, RWC Partners, Thornburg Investment Management, Vontobel Asset Management, GAM Investments and AXA Investment Managers. The event will take place at the Blue Monster in Trump National Doral Club Golf, host of the prestigious PGA TOUR events for the past 55 years.
On April 12th, at the Investment day, sponsored also by Schroders Investment Management, Columbia Threadneedle Investments and MFS Investment Management, participants will be able to take the opportunity to discuss about Global Markets as well as the latest portfolio management strategies and investment ideas from top-performing Asset Managers from the nine sponsors, such as GAM's Tom Mansley.
MBS and ABS
Mansley is an Investment Director specializing in the analysis and management of mortgage and asset backed securities (MBS and ABS). On the first day of the event, he will talk about how MBS may offer a differentiated fixed income proposition for investors. Given that the market is large, liquid and offers a diverse range of instruments, with securities that may be suited to virtually every stage of the economic cycle, risk/return objectives and appetites, Mansley will provide an overview of the market and discuss his team’s active management approach to this low duration strategy.
He joined GAM in June 2014 from specialist MBS and ABS manager Singleterry Mansley Asset Management, which he joined in 2008 and at which he was CIO. Prior to that, he headed the structured products division at Seix Advisors, an asset management subsidiary of SunTrust. Previously, he held a wide range of MBS-related roles including fixed income portfolio management, proprietary trading and risk management at several global and European banks such as JP Morgan and Credit Suisse First Boston.
Tom Mansley holds an MBA from Pace University, an MS in mathematics from the Courant Institute at New York University, a BS in Mathematics and Computer Science from Pace University, and is a CFA charterholder. He is based in New York.
