Schroders appoints Gareth Isaac as a senior portfolio manager within the London-based fixed income multi-sector team. He joins in October and will work on high-conviction mandates.

Schroders chief investment officer of fixed income Philippe Lespinard says: “Isaac brings a skill set that complements our existing multi-sector framework. He has more than 12 years experience as a portfolio manager in global fixed income markets, and has developed an enviable and consistent track record through a wide variety of market environments.”
