Swiss fund managers Zurich Scudder Investments (ZSI) has appointed Igor Ojereliev as portfolio manager and analyst on its emerging market bond team.
Ojereliev will focus mostly on the Eastern European debt markets, and reports to ZSI head of the emerging markets bond team, Paul Murray John.
Prior to joining ZSI he was an emerging markets portfolio manager within the global bond team at Citigroup Asset Management in London, and before that he was a trader on the emerging market bond desk at Bear Stearns in New York.
Zurich Scudder manages about $1.2 billion in emerging market debt in a number of funds managed in London and Boston.
Ojereliev’s appointment follows the recent arrival of Henry Stipp as the economist for the emerging market debt team.
The positions become effective in July.
