Calich takes the lead on M&G Emerging Markets Bond fund’s management
M&G manager Mike Riddell has handed over the management of the M&G Emerging Markets Bond fund to Claudia Calich, who joined the fund as new lead manager.
Riddell, who has managed the fund since 2010, will now focus on global government bonds and currencies. Matthew Russell will remain the fund’s deputy manager.
Calich joined the M&G retail fixed interest team in October 2013, previously working at Invesco in New York as head of emerging markets debt and senior portfolio manager.
M&G head of retail fixed interest Jim Leaviss said: “With over 20 years of emerging market debt experience we believe that Claudia is well placed to manage the M&G Emerging Markets Bond fund.
“Mike has done a fantastic job, especially since the fund mandate was changed in mid- 2012 and the change of fund manager simply reflects our existing approach to allocating our talent to where it will be of most value. Claudia will also assist in generating emerging market investment ideas for the whole range of M&G retail fixed interest funds.”
