Allianz Global Investors announced on July 23 the appointment of Greg Saichin as head of global emerging market debt. He joins in September, heading to the London team. Mr. Saichin was previously head of emerging markets & high yield fixed income portfolio management at Pioneer Investments, and has over 20 years’ experience of emerging markets, the last 13 as a portfolio manager.
Commenting on the appointment, Andreas Utermann, co-head and global chief investment officer at AllianzGI, said: “With the secular rebalancing of global growth from OECD markets towards emerging economies, emerging market debt is becoming an increasingly significant and attractive asset class for long-term investors. The superior growth rates will be sustained through higher rates of investment, much of which will be debt-funded. We are very pleased to be welcoming Greg to AllianzGI, where his considerable experience and a strong track record in this area will be put in to action immediately.”
The creation of a global emerging market debt offering is the latest in a series of recent enhancements to AllianzGI’s client offering. In the last year, it has built successful infrastructure debt and infrastructure equity capabilities in addition to a new offering in regional Asian bonds.
