M&G Investments has hired emerging market debt specialist Claudia Calich from Invesco, the US parent of Invesco Perpetual.
Ms Calich left Invesco at the end of July and will join M&G on October 18. At Invesco she was head of emerging market debt and a senior portfolio manager based in New York.
Jim Leaviss, head of M&G retail fixed interest, said the appointment would “deepen and broaden” his team’s coverage of the emerging market debt sector.
The company’s existing £32.2m M&G Emerging Market Bond fund, run by Mike Riddell, has gained 49.1 per cent in the five years to October 2, according to FE Analytics.
