Royal London Asset Management has hired Azhar Hussain from Insight Investment Management as its new head of global high yield.
Hussain, who will report to Jonathan Platt, head of fixed interest at RLAM, will concentrate on expanding the asset manager’s high yield investment capability.
Prior to joining RLAM, Hussain was head of high yield and leveraged loans at Insight and ran a number of high yield credit funds. He has also spent this at Gulf International Bank and Deloitte & Touche.
Platt says: “[Hussain] has considerable experience of European, US and emerging market high yield and his strong analytical skills and investment management experience will complement the existing capabilities of RLAM’s wider fixed interest team and enable us to build out our global high yield capability.”
