Schroders Adds Alyse Kelly In Structured Credit

Schroders has hired Alyse Kelly as a Senior Portfolio Manager, a newly created role, in its Securitised Credit team. Kelly will be based in New York and report to Michelle Russell-Dowe, Schroders’ Head of Securitised Credit.

Kelly joins a senior team with an average of 20 years’ experience in managing institutional capital across multiple cycles. Prior to joining Schroders’ Securitised Credit team she was a Director at Pretium focused on leveraged loans in the media, telecom, lodging, gaming, leisure, and consumer products sectors. She previously held Director roles at Valcour Capital and Aladdin Capital, having begun her career as a Credit Analyst at Standard & Poor’s.

Michelle Russell-Dowe, Schroders’ Head of Securitised Credit, commented:

“We are excited to add Alyse’s unique perspective to our investment committee. She is a great addition to our deep bench of credit experts and her expertise is perfectly suited to help serve our clients.

“During these increasingly uncertain and unusual times, flexibility is key to accessing opportunity. Harnessing opportunities across a wide range of sectors will be critical to all our investors whether they are invested in our mutual funds, our private credit funds or our liquid hybrid strategies.

“Indeed, as we mark the beginning of what is expected to be a prolonged environment of low interest rates, a situation we call ‘#TheZero’, it is especially important to identify and deliver a diverse range of investment opportunities, including those in complex and inefficient markets. #TheZero presents incredible challenges and, with the appointment of Alyse, we look forward to continuing to be part of the solution.”

Since its acquisition in 2016, assets managed by Schroders’ Securitised Credit team have grown from $5bn to nearly $15bn in invested and committed capital. Schroders announced late last year that the team had raised $1.5 billion for its FOCUS II private credit fund.
