Legg Mason’s Borromeo to discuss global bond opportunities
Regina Borromeo (pictured), portfolio manager at Legg Mason Global Asset Management will join InvestmentEurope‘s Fund Selector Bond Focus Italy in Milan.
“Global bonds offer a superior and diverse opportunity set, and allow the potential for increased active return. Focusing on a single market’s economic and interest rate cycle to generate returns is one dimensional, risky, and restricts an investor’s return potential.
“Legg Mason is offering a globally diversified income solution that aims to provide clients with a consistent, high level of income and has a strong emphasis on capital preservation.
“The Legg Mason Brandywine Income Optimiser Fund is managed by Brandywine Global, a wholly owned subsidiary of Legg Mason, and portfolio manager Regina Borromeo will explain how the Fund invests in a broad mix of asset classes to maximise income yield over a business cycle as well as making full use of derivatives to hedge against adverse market movements,” the company said.
Borromeo joined Brandywine in December 2010, bringing with her over 13 years of investing experience. Previously, she was a Vice President – Portfolio Manager and Senior Credit Analyst, Global Fixed Income with Morgan Stanley Investment Management PLC in London (2007-2010) and held various Fixed Income Analyst positions with Morgan Stanley Investment Management in Philadelphia (2001-2007).
