RBC Bluebay Asset Management’s chief of investment strategy has announced his retirement after nearly a decade at the firm, and more than 30 years in the industry.

Riley (pictured) joined Bluebay in September 2013 as head of credit strategy, before becoming chief investment strategist in February 2018. He was also a member of the firm’s investment committee and asset allocation team.

Prior to his time at Bluebay, Riley spent 12 years at Fitch Ratings, where he was managing director and head of sovereign and supranational ratings.

He was also a senior economist at UBS Investment Bank and an economic adviser at the Treasury from 1994 to 1997, during which time he advised on international economic and debt issues.

In a LinkedIn post, Riley said it had been a privilege to work with, and learn from, his colleagues at Bluebay, Fitch, and the Treasury.

He added: “As well as enjoying more time with family and friends, I am looking forward to new and interesting ways I can use the experience and expertise I have gained during my career.”

A Bluebay spokesperson confirmed to Portfolio Adviser Riley had officially left the firm.
