Pioneer Investments outlines personnel changes
Yerlan Syzdykov has taken over as head of Emerging Markets, Bond & High Yield at Pioneer Investments, as part of a number of people moves affecting the manager.
Syzdykov (pictured) remains lead portfolio manager for Pioneer’s Emerging Market Debt fund but will also take on overall performance responsibility for all Emerging Markets & Euro High Yield investment strategies managed by a team of six portfolio managers.
The additional responsibilities come as Syzdykov replaces Greg Saichin, previous head of Emerging Markets & Yigh Yield Fixed Income, who has left Pioneer.
The manager said that another two portfolio managers will join in August, focused on local currency emerging market debt and credit: Desmond English, who previously was at Commerzbank, and Ester Law, previously at Societe General.
The additional appointments come after three research analysts recently joined the manager: Marina Vlasenko for emerging market financials, Paul Cheung for real estate and Ray Jian for industrials.
