RCM’s Riegler to discuss yields opportunity in Madrid
Andreas Riegler, head of Global Fixed Income, Raiffeisen Capital Management (RCM) will join InvestmentEurope‘s Fund Selector Forum Spain 2015 in Madrid. The manager will discuss how to make the most out of European high yield bonds in a low-interest environment.
“The ECB asset purchases have intensified the search for yield: While negative yields for Euro government bonds have become a new normal investors looking for income have little choice but to move into lower-rated credit. The mechanics of QE pushes investors from low-yielding government bonds to investment-grade corporate bonds, and even further into high-yield,” Riegler will argue.
Raiffeisen Capital Management’s experience in managing Euro High Yield bonds coincides with the beginnings of the Euro HY Market in 1999, thus the Asset management company can offer you a reliable track record based on a valid investment process tested already over two default-cycles.
The team is led by Riegler, who has been the lead fund manger of the Raiffeisen European HighYield for many years.
He joined Raiffeisen Capital Management in 1998, where he was responsible for developing its expertise in the European corporate bond market what was then still a young asset class into Raiffeisen Capital Management’s investment universe.
Since then “Corporate Bonds” has been expanded into a team of fund managers, in which Andreas Riegler holds an important position. As Deputy Chief Investment Officer for Global Fixed Income, Andreas Riegler is, along with CIO Ingrid Szeiler, responsible for running and administration of Raiffeisen Capital Management’s Fixed Income Team.
Andreas Riegler started his career in 1990 as an equity analyst at Länderbank and subsequently performed the same function at two other banks over the next eight years. He received a master’s degree in business management from Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration in 1990. Andreas Riegler is a Certified EFFAS Financial Analyst (CEFA) and Certified Management Accountant.
