Amundi’s Bender to discuss global fixed income at Hamburg Summit
Adrian Bender (pictured), head of Product Specialists Global Fixed Income, Global Macro and Foreign Exchange at Amundi will be discussing fixed income investing at the InvestmentEurope Pan European Fund Selector Summit held in Hamburg on 7-9 October.
Bender will argue that 2015 will continue to be a complex economic environment for fixed income investors with continued divergent monetary policies within the main economic centers likely to lead to disparate bond yields.
He believes that the combination of abundant liquidity and low interest rates will continue to limit the sources of return and that alpha generation will be key in achieving high returns in this ultra-low yield environment.
Bender joined Amundi as a senior product specialist in July 2010, and was subsequently named team head in November 2014. The team of six members is responsible for supporting the Global Fixed Income strategies on a worldwide basis through the Amundi sales teams. He has retained direct responsibility and supervision for the European market.
Prior to moving to the Product Specialist team, Bender was head of UK fund distribution of Amundi London (previously CAAM).
Before that, he worked in the asset management industry for eight years in Paris for CAAM and Crédit Lyonnais AM where he was responsible for French corporate and Institutional Midcap clients and also spent 10 years working for the Crédit Lyonnais bank in Paris, in private and commercial banking.
He holds Bachelor’s degree (Hons) from Middlesex University in the UK and CESEM business school in Reims, France.
