|Scott Roberts in Dr. Krause's Fixed Income Classroom|
Marquette alumnus, Scott Roberts, serves as President & CEO of Ziegler Capital Management. On Monday, October 5, 2015, he again presented to the students in Dr. Krause's Fixed Income class.
The students appreciated Mr. Roberts 25+ years of investment experience. Prior to joining Ziegler, he was President and Chief Investment Officer of Deerfield Capital Management and was responsible for all investment management, marketing, and operational activities of the firm. Scott oversaw the growth of assets under management at Deerfield from less than $400 million in 2000 to over $15 billion at the end of 2007.
Prior to joining Deerfield Capital, he was the Chief Investment Officer at several Zurich Insurance Company subsidiaries including Scudder Kemper Investments, Zurich Investment Management and CentreRe. Prior to Zurich, Mr. Roberts was the Director of Fixed Income for Loomis Sayles in Milwaukee and a Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager for Putnam Investments in Boston.
Dr. Krause said, "It is always a pleasure to have Scott Roberts in the classroom. He is a rare breed - he is an outstanding investment manager and he is a talented businessperson. It is not common to find someone who knows as much as he does about the financial markets - as well as how to run a $10 billion business. He is a special Marquette University alumnus."
