“David is the ideal successor to Jae; they have been longtime partners responsible for overseeing Loomis Sayles’ investment and research teams and David has been instrumental in building key components of the firm’s investment infrastructure over the past 13 years,” said Kevin Charleston, chairman and chief executive officer of Loomis Sayles. “David has dedicated his career to investment excellence and will continue to lead our ongoing efforts to refine our investment processes and promote rigor, repeatability and discipline. We are confident that David’s continued leadership will carry Loomis Sayles into its next phase of global growth and success.”
As CIO, David will assume leadership responsibilities for all Loomis Sayles investment, research, and trading teams with the exception of the Growth Equity Strategies (GES) team. GES is led by Aziz Hamzaogullari, EVP and founder, CIO and portfolio manager of the Growth Equity Strategies team. He will report directly to Kevin Charleston.
Jae joined Loomis Sayles in 2002 after 21 years with IBM, where he served as director of fixed income investments for the firm’s retirement fund. During his tenure at IBM, Jae vetted a wide range of investment management teams and developed a strong view of the key attributes of a successful investment process. Jae has applied that view to Loomis Sayles’ investment teams, their processes and the supporting research infrastructure since joining the firm.
“Jae’s vision for Loomis Sayles and the foundations he put in place have led to tremendous firm-wide growth, product expansion and a global reputation for investment excellence. During his tenure, assets under management have grown from $54 billion to our current all-time high of $328 billion,” said Kevin Charleston. “We are all grateful to Jae for his commitment and contributions to Loomis Sayles and our clients, and wish him the best in his next chapter.”
David joined Loomis Sayles in 2007 as director of quantitative research and risk analysis. He was promoted to deputy CIO in 2013, a position established in part to provide a succession plan for Jae. In 2015, David was appointed to the Loomis Sayles board of directors. Over the last seven years, Jae has systematically passed increasing oversight responsibilities to David across investments, research and trading. Notably, David assumed responsibility for Macro Strategies and Credit Research in 2015, oversight of Trading in 2018 and established the Custom Income Strategies team in 2019.
