Jim Cielinski of Threadneedle to discuss bonds in Tel Aviv
Jim Cielinski, head of Fixed Income at Threadneedle is set to discuss the task of finding alpha from fixed income investing at a time of rising interest rates or widening credit spreads, when he takes part in the InvestmentEurope Fund Selector Forum Israel in Tel Aviv on 3 December.
The situation facing fixed income investors is that following a run of years after the global financial crisis during which time they were able to generate good returns, they now must struggle with both low yields and lower spreads. Market conditions can change quickly, and in such an environment conventional fixed income approaches may leave them exposed. Cielinski is set to present his view that a more flexible approach is required.
Cielinski joined Threadneedle Investments in 2010 as head of Fixed Income, responsible for the overall management of the fixed income business, including investment process, product development and investment strategy.
He manages the Threadneedle (Lux) Global Opportunities Bond and is also a key participant in Threadneedle’s asset allocation process.
Before joining Threadneedle he spent 12 years at Goldman Sachs, leaving as head of Global Credit – Investment Grade. He has also held senior investment roles at Utah Retirement Systems and Brown Brothers Harriman.
