Henderson Global Investors has expanded its fixed interest product range with the launch of a Singapore-based product.
The Global Bond Unit Trust is managed by senior portfolio manager Tim Swadling, who transferred from the UK to Singapore to take on responsibility for the Asian and Japanese domestic bond markets.
One of Henderson's 60-strong global fixed interest team, Swadling has specialised in fixed interest investment since 1986, when he joined AMP Asset Management. He then transferred to Henderson following AMP's acquisition of Henderson in 1998.
Singapore has been Henderson Global Investors' Asian regional headquarters since 1995.
Henderson currently has 20 people based in Singapore and manages Asian equity assets, direct and indirect property assets and private equity investment from its office there.
The establishment of an Asian fixed interest capability comes soon after the expansion of Henderson's fixed interest capability to the US and the appointment of two US fixed income credit specialists, Harry Resis and Daniel Doyle, who joined the company's global credit and fixed income team.
Based in Chicago, Resis and Doyle manage US credit portfolios, complementing the team's current expertise in Europe and Asia Pacific.
Resis has been appointed director of US fixed income and will lead the US based team, while Doyle will be director of US credit.
Subsequently, Henderson also appointed of three more US based fixed income and credit specialists ' Robert Horton, Ken Karwowski and David Nordin ' to join the team as senior credit analysts, also based in Chicago.
Hendersons now has fixed interest and credit teams based in the US, Europe, Asian and Australasian markets.
