Schroders expands Australian Private Debt team
Tim Hallam is set to join Schroders as a portfolio manager for its Australian Private Debt team. Hallam has more than 30 years of experience in the Australian banking sector with senior leadership credentials from Macquarie Bank and RBC Capital Markets. He was most recently the executive director of the Federal Government's Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF). He was responsible for the origination and execution of loans benefiting Northern Australia.
Hallam's role at Schroders is a new one, reporting to recently-appointed head of private debt Nicole Kidd. "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," said Kidd. "His experience, relationships and skill set make him a good fit for the Schroders team which strives to deliver high quality outcomes for client portfolios."
Schroders' head of fixed income and multi-asset Simon Doyle welcomed Hallam to the team. "Nicole has made tremendous progress in establishing our capability in the Australian Private debt space, and with Tim joining the team we are extremely well placed to deliver for our clients in 2021 and beyond. 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."
