EdRAM to discuss convertibles at Frankfurt Roundtable
Annelie Fearon, senior portfolio manager at Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management will discuss opportunities in Convertibles at the InvestmentEurope Frankfurt Roundtable on 22 February.
With an eye on upcoming rate hikes by the Fed and Bank of England, Fearon will argue that convertible bonds offer an attractive opportunity to navigate the challenge due to their combination of upside optionality and downside credit protection.
She will also stress the asset class’s record of outperforming equities in periods of increased volatility and fixed income in periods of rising rates.
Fearon joined Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management in March 2016 as a senior Convertible Bonds portfolio manager and analyst.
From 2003 to 2015 she worked for Cheyne Capital Management based in London as a portfolio manager and senior analyst on the firm’s Global Convertible Bond Strategies where she co-managed a portfolio of global convertible bonds, equity CFDs and index futures and options comprising the Cheyne Convertible Absolute Return Fund UCITS.
Previously, she worked for JP Morgan as an associate analyst within the European Equity Research Team specializing in the European ISP and New Media sector and latterly in Food & Household Products.
