Thomas Rutz of MainFirst to attend Reykjavik Roundtable

Thomas Rutz, fund manager Emerging Markets at MainFirst Asset Management is set to take part in the upcoming Reykjavik Roundtable 2018, hosted by InvestmentEurope on 13 September at the Grand Hotel in the Icelandic capital.

Rutz will focus on the opportunities he sees in EM corporate bonds as part of the spectrum of fixed income that investors may look to for diversification and other purposes amidst talk of tapering by central banks in developed markets.

Rutz has worked as a portfolio manager at MainFirst since 2012 and is responsible for investments in EM by the MainFirst Emerging Markets Corporate Bond Fund Balanced and the MainFirst Emerging Markets Credit Opportunities Fund. He also heads MainFirst Affiliated Fund Managers (Switzerland) AG. Prior to that, he headed the Emerging Markets division at Clariden Leu, with teams for stocks, bonds and currency managing assets totalling over €1bn. As head of the division, he was responsible for investment strategy in emerging markets.
