Nomura’s Richard Hodges to speak at Copenhagen Forum
Richard Hodges, portfolio manager at Nomura Asset Management, will be speaking about unconstrained fixed income when he takes part in the upcoming Fund Selector Forum Denmark in Copenhagen on 22 September.
Taking an unconstrained approach means a portfolio manger can diversify, hedge risk and position to benefit from different market conditions, including one of rising interest rates, Hodges will argue.]
Richard Hodges joined Nomura Asset Management (NAM) in November 2014 to launch the Global Dynamic Bond Strategy. Previously, he was head of High Alpha Fixed Income at Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM), managing its Dynamic Bond Trust – an unconstrained fixed income fund.
He managed the Dynamic Bond Trust from its inception in 2007 until April 2014.
