American Century Investments has added Vice President and Portfolio Manager Abdelak Adjriou to the teams managing its Global Fixed Income (Global Bond Fund) and non-US Fixed Income (International Bond Fund) strategies.
Formerly with HSBC Global Asset Management, Adjriou joins American Century's fixed income rates and currency markets team, where he provides local rates expertise in both developed and emerging markets. AdjrHeiou joined the firm on 14 March.
"With the hiring of Abdelak, an experienced local rates portfolio manager, we continue the multi-year expansion of our global fixed income capabilities," says John Lovito, co-lead of American Century's rates and currency markets team and a senior vice president and senior portfolio manager. "In the past two years alone, we've added four emerging markets debt investment professionals, averaging 14 years of industry experience. Abdelak's skills are a strong complement to those across the broader global fixed income team."
Adjriou joins American Century from HSBC, where he's served in various investment management capacities since 2004.
