Corporate credit and high yield specialist Muzinich & Co has appointed an emerging market corporate debt portfolio manager.
Warren Hyland joins from Schroders, where he was a London-based senior portfolio manager specialising in emerging market corporate debt and global high yield.
In his new role, Hyland will be tasked with broadening the scope of Muzinich & Co’s emerging market debt capability. The increased research and investment capacity will initially feed into suitable existing mandates and investment products.
George Muzinich, founder, chairman and chief executive e of Muzinich & Co, says: “Emerging market debt is an increasingly important part of corporate credit. While we already have capability in this area, Warren’s appointment allows us to develop it further.
“It was very important to find the right person for this role – a professional who suits our disciplined research-driven, bottom-up approach to credit. Warren’s investment philosophy - and focus on capital preservation - is very much in line with our own and we are delighted to welcome him.”
Hyland, who will be based in London, says: “This is a very exciting move for me and I am looking forward to joining the Muzinich & Co team.”
