Peter Marber has joined Loomis, Sayles & Company as head of emerging markets investments. His responsibilities will encompass emerging markets fixed income and equity investing. Mr. Marber will report to Jae Park, chief investment officer.
He joins the firm from HSBC Global Asset Management, where he held several roles during his tenure within HSBC’s emerging markets group including chief business strategist, global head of emerging markets debt, and portfolio manager. Prior to its acquisition by HSBC in 2005, Mr. Marber was founding partner, senior portfolio manager and chief investment strategist for The Atlantic Advisors. He was also president of the emerging markets subsidiaries at Dresdner Kleinwort (formerly Wasserstein Perella) and he began his career at UBS.
Mr. Marber assumes leadership of an emerging markets product team that includes Portfolio Managers David Rolley, Eddy Sternberg and Peter Frick, and Emerging Markets Senior Credit Strategist Elisabeth Colleran. The team is supported by over a dozen emerging markets specialists who work within Loomis Sayles trading or sovereign, credit, equity and quantitative research groups.
“As emerging markets have grown in importance we have continued to add investment professionals focused in this area. Peter’s depth of experience and expertise will help ensure we bring the full power of our firm’s resources to bear in identifying emerging markets investment opportunities for our clients’ portfolios,” said Mr. Park.
Loomis Sayles has recently added four key EM resources, including Bianca Taylor, emerging markets senior sovereign analyst; Celeste Tay, Asia sovereign analyst; Li Ping Yeo, Asia senior credit analyst; and Nada Oulidi, emerging markets senior bank analyst.
The company was managing over US$12 billion of emerging markets assets as of June 30 this year.
