Ex-Henderson GI credit head joins BlueBay as DM co-head

Global fixed income manager BlueBay Asset Management has appointed Stephen Thariyan (pictured) to the newly created role of Co-Head of Developed Markets.

Based in London and reporting to Raphael Robelin, chief investment officer, he will work alongside Mark Dowding, co-head of Developed Markets.

He will be responsible for the developed markets’ corporate credit investment process and support development and growth of BlueBay’s corporate credit strategies across investment grade, leveraged finance and convertible bonds.

Thariyan worked most recently at Henderson Global Investors where he spent the last ten years as global head of Credit. Prior to this, he had an eight-year stint as senior portfolio manager at Rogge Global Partners and also held roles at Natwest Markets and Chevron Corporation.

Commenting on Thariyan’s appointment, Robelin said: “As we continue to grow our investment capabilities in response to constantly evolving markets and investor demands, our ability to generate superior investment performance is critical to our success. As such, we continue to strengthen our investment teams to maintain our focus on strong investment returns for new and existing investors.

“Stephen is a highly experienced credit investor with a proven ability to lead a global team and generate strong investment returns. His experience will complement Mark’s strong macro and sovereign expertise and, together, I believe they will continue to enhance our developed markets footprint.”
