Insync Funds Management Appoints Portfolio Manager John Lobb

John Lobb

Insync Funds Management is pleased to announce the appointment of John Lobb as portfolio manager within the investment team.

John has over 25 years of analytical and portfolio management experience. Previously he had worked at Bankers Trust Australia, Citigroup Global Asset Management, Credit Suisse Global Asset Management and Orion Asset Management.

Monik Kotecha, Chief Investment Officer at Insync commented that “John has an outstanding track record and was an integral part of a successful investment team at Orion which raised and managed A$6.5 billion in funds under management.”

“He shares a similar philosophy to ours of investing in high quality businesses that are benefitting from global megatrends combined with the active management of downside risk.”

Monik and John agree that downside protection is becoming more critical to manage both longevity and sequential risk as the demographics profile of the Australian population is moving towards retirement.

John will be working with Monik in the management of the Global Titans portfolios.
