UK - State Street Global Advisors (SSgA), the investment management arm of State Street, has appointed two new portfolio managers to its London-based global fixed income team.
Joseph Moody joins SSgA as a senior fund manager responsible for a mix of country and asset class coverage within global bond markets.
Previously he worked for Foreign & Colonial as assistant director for the fixed income component of F&C’s largest balanced institutional portfolios.
Kevin Anderson joins the firm as an investment manager, with a similar remit, from Schroder Investment Management where he spent three years as an analyst on the fixed income team, and also headed up the firm’s Quant Research Group.
Moody and Anderson will report to Vincent Kok, head of fixed income.
