Barings bolsters fixed income and currency team

Barings Asset Management has appointed Harjeet Heer as the group’s global head of aggregate business.

Heer joins both the fixed interest and currency team in London and will report to the head of department Alan Wilde.

Heer was previously managing director and chief operating officer of the fixed income business at Credit Suisse. His career in the industry spans over 20 years.

Wilde says: ““We are delighted to welcome Harjeet to the team and are confident that his extensive investment experience in fixed income will play a valuable role in continuing to provide innovative solutions for our clients and developing the Global Aggregate business. Barings was one of the first global managers to run a 130/30 Fixed Income product and we look forward to building on our strong track record in the global fixed income arena.”

What a difference six months makes. Speaking in September last year, we had warned of ‘excessive pessimism’ afflicting the market’s perception of India. Since then, responsible central bank policy from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), alongside improving global growth, has meant that India’s macro environment is strengthening quickly. The current account deficit has shrunk, inflation is falling and the government has embarked on a heavy dose of much needed fiscal consolidation. As a result, the rupee has been one of the strongest global currencies this year while the market has touched all-time highs, rallying by more than 20 per cent (GBP) since September. This begs the question: are we now in a period of ‘irrational exuberance’? Not yet.
