IFM Investors today announced the appointment of Rich Randall as Global Head of Debt Investments. Mr. Randall takes on this senior leadership role from his prior position as Executive Director of Debt Investments, which he had held since joining IFM Investors in 2013.
Mr. Randall replaces Robin Miller, who will semi-retire from IFM Investors after a 17-year association with the company. Mr. Miller will remain with IFM Investors and will transition to the role of Senior Advisor and Chair of Investment Committee within the organisation.
In his new role, Mr. Randall will manage IFM Investors’ global debt investment teams and maintain the organization’s robust global debt investment process and relationships with investors. He will also oversee the sourcing of infrastructure debt opportunities internationally. He will continue to be based in IFM Investors’ New York offices and will report directly to CEO Brett Himbury.
“Rich’s proven expertise in sourcing debt opportunities and team management makes him an ideal lead for our global team, which includes dozens of professionals spanning three continents,” said Brett Himbury, CEO, IFM Investors. “As credit specialists, our approach to debt investments is even more relevant to a wide range of global investors as they recognise the growing importance is income assets in their portfolios.”
“Through his years of leading our debt investment teams, Robin has built a robust global practice that has generated solid performance and substantial value to investors,” said Himbury. “We thank him for his years of service in this role and look forward to his continued work with IFM Investors.”

Prior to that he held VP positions at Calyon and Trust Company of the West (now EIG).
Mr. Randall will commence his new role on July 1, 2016.
