Rockefeller Asset Management Expands Fixed Income Capabilities with the Addition of Three Veteran High Yield and Investment Grade Municipal Bond Portfolio Managers

Rockefeller Asset Management ("Rockefeller" or "the Firm"), the asset management arm of Rockefeller Capital Management, today announced the addition of three high yield and investment grade municipal bond professionals: Scott Cottier, Managing Director and Portfolio Manager; Mark DeMitry, Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager; and Michael Camarella, Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager. The move expands the firm's capabilities providing differentiated investment solutions within its Fixed Income business, which currently manages approximately $5 billion on behalf of investors.

Cottier, DeMitry, and Camarella have invested together consistently for over 20 years and were listed as portfolio managers on strategies accounting for over $25 billion in assets. They will report to Alex Petrone, Director of Fixed Income, and support the expansion of Rockefeller Asset Management's active fixed income investment solutions, including launching new high yield municipal credit investment strategies and vehicles. The addition of Cottier, DeMitry, and Camarella also introduces Rockefeller to the Rochester market, where they will be based.

"In our view, there are compelling opportunities in both high yield and investment grade municipal bonds today, and we remain committed to expanding our offering to enhance our ability to deliver alpha through actively managed strategies." said Petrone. "We are excited to broaden our existing team's capabilities with the addition of these three deeply experienced investment professionals with over two decades of experience seeking alpha."

"We are thrilled to welcome Scott, Mark, and Michael - three veteran portfolio managers with over 20 years of experience investing together in high yield and investment grade municipal markets," said Casey Clark, President and Chief Investment Officer at Rockefeller Asset Management. "As our business continues to grow, we remain focused on hiring world-class talent within inefficient asset classes or themes where we believe the probability of outperformance by following a consistent investment process is high."

Previously, he was a Senior Portfolio Manager and Head of Opportunistic Municipal Funds for the Invesco Municipal Bond team and before that a senior portfolio manager at OppenheimerFunds and Victory Capital Management.
