M&Gs Mike Riddell to join Allianz GI

Allianz Global Investors (Allianz GI) has announced the expansion of its European fixed income team through the appointment of Mike Riddell (pictured) as UK fixed income portfolio manager.

Based in London, he will contribute to the Allianz GI’s strategic outlook on the fixed income sector and will  write for the group’s fixed income blog. He reports to Mauro Vittorangeli, CIO for Conviction Fixed Income at Allianz Global Investors.

He joins Allianz GI from M&G, where he spent more than 12 years, working on a range of fixed income funds and actively contributed towards the Bond Vigilantes blog and was particularly well-known for his bearish view of China.

Franck Dixmier, global head of Fixed Income at Allianz Global Investors, said: “Mike joins us at an exciting time for our fixed income business, and I am sure that his deep experience of both UK and global fixed income markets will play a central role in building this new pillar in our international fixed income capability. Hiring such a senior, experienced fixed income practitioner as Mike underlines our ambition for our bond business in the UK.”
