Schroders has expanded its Australian private debt team, with the addition of a new portfolio manager.
Tim Hallam has taken the newly created role, where he will join Nicole Kidd, Schroders’ head of private debt, Australia, in growing and managing Schroders’ local private debt capability from Wednesday.
He has joined the firm from the federal government’s Northern Australian Infrastructure Facility (NAIF) where he was most recently executive director, responsible for the origination and execution of loans benefitting the state.
Previously he worked in the banking sector for more than 30 years, holding senior roles at Macquarie Bank and RBC Capital Markets.
Ms Kidd said Mr Hallam’s experience in financial markets and his background in executing new offerings will assist in the continued development, growth and management of Schroders’ private debt segment.
“Tim has a wealth of knowledge and relationships in Australia’s financial markets and brings extensive experience in public and private sector financing of structured, corporate and leveraged deals across all parts of the capital structure,” she said.
Simon Doyle, head of fixed income and multi-asset at Schroders added the appointment will help boost the private debt division.
“Having investors of Nicole and Tim’s calibre at the core of our capability is central to our goal of becoming a formidable player in the Australian private debt market,” Mr Doyle said.
Ms Kidd also recently joined the company, coming onboard in September to lead the private debt segment.
