Investec Asset Management has bolstered its emerging market debt team with the hire of Victoria Harling from Nomura.
Harling has been appointed co-portfolio manager of the Investec emerging markets corporate debt strategy. She will run the Luxembourg-based sicav alongside co-manager Peter Eerdmans, head of the firm’s emerging market debt and currency team.
In addition to co-managing the fund, she will also take responsibility for corporate emerging markets debt and hard currency emerging market debt within the wider team.
Harling joins Investec from Nomura, where she ran hedge fund and proprietary trading strategies. Prior to this, she ran emerging market debt portfolios at Henderson Global Investors.
Investec Asset Management co-chief investment officer Domenico Ferrini says: “Harling’s skills will further strengthen our specialist team to capture the investment opportunities we see evolving over the medium-term in this area.”
