Media Release: Colonial First State Global Asset Management Launches New High Yield Team
Colonial First State Global Asset Management (‘CFSGAM’), known outside of Australia as First State Investments, are pleased to announce the launch of a new High Yield team led by Matt Philo to further expand the firm’s global fixed income capability. The addition of the new team reflects CFSGAM’s strategy of continuing to build out its global fixed income business, to ensure it can offer existing and prospective clients access to their best investment thinking across the fixed income spectrum.
Based in New York, the High Yield team of five investment professionals will manage dedicated sub-investment grade corporate bond portfolios. The team will collaborate closely with CFSGAM’s existing fixed income teams across the US, Asia and EMEA and share investment views and ideas through CFSGAM’s proprietary, technology-based platform; the Investment Opinion Network (‘ION’). Other investment capabilities across CFSGAM’s global fixed income platform will have immediate access to these strategies and research insights for the benefit of their clients.
