M&G's fixed interest fund manager Theo Zemek is to take a six-month sabbatical.
Investment Week reported earlier this month that she was going to take on the role of investment ambassador for M&G in Europe. At the same time the M&G bond team was being reorganised under Simon Pilcher, former head of parent company Prudential's fixed interest desk which has been merged with M&G's team.
Until then Zemek had been head of fixed interest. She ran the Emerging Markets Bond, International Sovereign Bond and Real Yield funds.
The group's chief investment officer Vivian Bazalgette said Zemek had signed a new contract which started on 31 March 2001. Bazalgette said that Zemek was taking the sabbatical to write articles about fixed interest investment and to spend time at her second home in France.
He said: "She signed a contract for her new job back at the end of August. She is taking a break and she will be full time again from 3 March 2001.
"There was no doubt that she was ready for a new challenge and we have been able to provide that for her. We will be rolling out investment products into continental Europe and she will be a great asset in that process both in designing and marketing those offerings."
