Henderson has expanded its fixed income team with the addition of Kevin Loome and five of his US credit specialists from Delaware Investments.
Henderson says the team, which joined on 4 February, will work across a number of its credit, high yield and investment grade strategies.
In addition to Loome, Henderson has appointed Charles Devereux, Devon Everhart, Douglas Zinser, Matthew Fanandakis and Gregg Gola. All six will be based in Philadelphia.
Loome becomes head of US credit at the asset manager and will report to global head of credit Stephen Thariyan.
Henderson head of fixed income Jim Irvine says “We have long intended to build out a truly global fixed income platform. It was important to us that we did so by sourcing, not only a team with top line performance across the retail and institutional market but also one that would be a cultural fit with our existing team. Kevin and team stood out over all those we met.”
