Advent CM’s Woodson to discuss convertible bonds at Hamburg Summit

Hart Woodson, managing director and Global Convertibles portfolio manager at Advent Capital Management will discuss investing in Convertible Bonds at the InvestmentEurope Pan European Fund Selector Summit held from 7-9 October in Hamburg.

Woodson will argue that convertible securities play a positive role in boosting fixed income returns, dampening volatility and de-risking an equity portfolio and improving diversification through low correlation and positive asymmetry.

Hart Woodson has been the co-portfolio manager of the Global Balanced Convertible Strategy and the Global Phoenix Convertible Income Strategy since its inception.  In 2002 he wrote the book ‘Global Convertible Investing’.

Prior to joining Advent, Woodson was a senior vice president at GAMCO Investors, where he managed the Gabelli Global Convertible Securities Fund since its inception in 1994.

Before joining GAMCO predecessor Gabelli Asset Management in 1993, Woodson was a vice president of ABN AMRO Bank in the Netherlands in New Issues and Syndication.
