Northern Trust Asset Management Names Head of Global Macro for Fixed Income

Antulio Bomfim, Veteran Fed Economist With Industry Experience Assumes Newly Created Position

CHICAGO AND LONDON — Northern Trust Asset Management (NTAM), a leading global investment management firm with $1 trillion in assets under management as of June 30, 2022, announced today that Antulio Bomfim has been hired as head of Global Macro, a newly created position within its global fixed income group.

The expansion of NTAM’s global fixed income team, responsible for $470 billion in fixed income assets under management, is designed to enhance capabilities as the team serves the evolving needs of fixed income investors worldwide.

Bomfim joins NTAM with nearly 30 years of experience spanning roles within investment management and the Federal Reserve Board System. Most recently, he served as special adviser to the Fed Board as well as special adviser to Chairman Jerome Powell.

Previously, Bomfim was with Macroeconomic Advisers as a senior managing director, co-head of Monetary Policy Insights. Prior to that, he served as a portfolio manager and co-head of interest rate strategy for OFI Institutional Asset Management, a division of Oppenheimer Funds.

A longtime advisor, consultant and award-winning author, Bomfim brings deep practical and theoretical knowledge of the economy and financial markets. His fields of research include asset pricing, monetary policy, macroeconomics, investments and financial markets. He holds a Ph.D., MA and BA in Economics from the University of Maryland, as well as a MS in Mathematical Finance from the University of Oxford.

In his newly created role within NTAM’s Global Fixed Income Group, Bomfim has overall oversight responsibility for the Global Macro Group, which is responsible for interest rate strategy, systematic volatility, liquidity, and monitoring systemic risk globally. Bomfim is also responsible for the firm’s global liquidity management business. He reports to Chief Investment Officer of Global Fixed Income Thomas Swaney.

“Within the Global Fixed Income team, our fundamental tenet that investors should be compensated for the risk they take manifests itself in our management of four key risks – interest rate, volatility, prepayment and credit,” Swaney said. “Antulio’s expertise is well-suited to leading our multi-disciplined Global Macro Fixed Income team.”
