Liontrust Asset Management plans to launch strategic, high yield and absolute return bond fund after strengthening its fixed income team with following the appointment of David Roberts and Phil Milburn.

Roberts - who is head of the fixed income team at Kames Capital - and Phil - who is head of investment strategy of the team, which has a long and successful track record of managing fixed income funds - will join Liontrust early in 2018.

The group said the launch of the new funds was subject to regulatory approvals.

Chief executive John Ions said: "David Roberts and Phil Milburn will be an excellent addition to our existing seven fund management teams and we look forward to promoting them to our client base in the UK and Continental Europe.

"David and Phil are experienced fund managers, with a strong long-term track record of performance across a range of fixed income funds.

"David and Phil's investment style means their funds provide diversification away from many of the other popular fixed income funds.

"Another attraction for us is the fact that David and Phil have a strong investor following, particularly among intermediary clients in the UK.

"The recruitment of David and Phil will not only expand our fund management capability but also strengthen further our fixed income proposition.

"Their investment style complements our Sustainable Fixed Income team of Stuart Steven, Kenny Watson and Aitken Ross."
