Schroders adds five to global multi-sector team


Schroders has added five people to its fixed income global multi-sector team, in both London and New York.

The asset manager has hired Paul Grainger as senior portfolio manager, coming from Wellington Management. He will join the London office, having spent 18 years in the industry, previously being associate partner and fixed income portfolio manager at Wellington.

Schroders has also added Mads Nielsen from GLG Partners. He previously worked on macro and total return quantitative strategies at GLG, and will now be a quantitative strategist at Schroders.

Schroders has also added a three-person team to the New York office. David Gottlieb, Vincent Messina and Whitney Tindale come from Third Wave Asset Management, a firm they founded last year.
