MainFirst’s Thomas Rutz joins Stockholm Forum

Thomas Rutz, senior fund manager Emerging Markets at MainFirst Asset Management is set to discuss relative value investing in emerging market debt when he takes part in the upcoming Fund Selector Forum Stockholm on 1 December at The Grand Hotel.

Rutz is set to argue that EM corporate debt offers significant opportunities for active managers in an environment of positive company fundamentals and improving economic data in the relevant markets. Coupled with market inefficiencies and the particular nature of EM corporate debt, it means specialist managers are best placed to take advantage of the opportunity to generate alpha.

Rutz has been a portfolio manager at MainFirst since September 2012. Previously, He was head of Emerging Markets at Clariden Leu/Credit Suisse, leading the Emerging Markets Bond, Equity and Currency teams. Prior to that, he spent six years at ABB Capital B.V. in Zurich and Singapore as deputy chief trader and two years as chief dealer capital markets at the Bank of Bermuda Ltd., Hamilton. From 1985 to 1994, Thomas held various proprietary trading related positions at UBS.
