The world’s largest publicly-traded hedge fund manager has just put together a team focusing on emerging markets debt.
Man GLG, an investment management arm at Man Group, hired Phil Yuhn, Lisa Chua, Ehsan Bashi and Maria do Carmo Cal, according to a press release. Both Yuhn and Chua have previously worked at the emerging markets debt team at HSBC Global Asset Management, alongside Guillermo Ossés , who joined Man GLG as head of emerging market debt strategies in January.
Bashi was previously a manager at KPMG, while Carmo Cal joined from Banco Itaú BBA International, where she was a managing director and head of capital markets.
The emerging markets debt team, based in New York and London, mainly looks at hard currency, local currency and “opportunistic strategy investing” across the region.
Man GLG run $27.9 billion in assets as of March, according to figures the firm released. The firm was acquired by Man Group in 2010 in a bid to expand its range of funds and boost profitability in the wake of the financial crisis.
