Cameron is a Multi-Manager Research Analyst at Aviva Investors. He is currently responsible for external fund research and selection in the areas of US, Emerging Markets and Asian Equities as well as Global Bonds. Prior to this role, he spent eight years at RBC Investor & Treasury Services in Canada working closely with institutional clients.
Manager Research as a discipline involves the in-depth analysis of investment strategies combining such considerations as people, philosophy, investment process and performance. Cameron cannot stress enough the importance of diverse teams in the investment decision-making process. Diversity of thought and experience is essential in the analysis of investment opportunities and the associated risks. Perhaps the greater challenge is to assess the level of investment team inclusiveness – how freely ideas and can shared and openly debated. Though he has seen the industry make incredible progress, Cameron is keen to continually challenge the status quo pushing for the asset management industry to continue to embrace diversity and inclusion.
Whilst Cameron is involved in various diversity initiatives, he also spends time promoting industry-wide professional development through his volunteer work with the CFA UK Structured Learning Committee.
Cameron is a CFA charterholder and a CAIA charterholder. He holds a degree in Economics from Simon Fraser University. In his free time, he enjoys walks across the English countryside.
