Calamos Investments hires fixed income co-CIO


Calamos Investments has appointed R Matthew Freund as co-chief investment officer, head of fixed income strategies, to spearhead the firm's further expansion into fixed income, credit and alternative products.

Freund (pictured) joins Calamos from USAA Investments, where he was chief investment officer of USAA Investments, leading the teams responsible for the portfolio management of USAA's mutual funds and affiliated portfolios, including P&C and life insurance products, and overseeing more than USD140 billion in assets.  
John P Calamos, Sr, founder, chairman and global chief investment officer, says: "Matt adds a depth of experience to the firm in a new area for us and complements our co-CIO and investment team approach. He will work closely with me and our teams as John Koudounis continues to pursue and execute on a strategy of thoughtful growth, focused on serving existing clients and attracting new ones."
Freund's career spans more than 25 years of investment management experience and over 20 years at USAA, which he joined in 1994. As chief investment officer at USAA, his responsibilities included fixed income and equity investments, trading and research, as well as serving as lead portfolio manager for several highly regarded fixed income mutual funds.
"The opportunity to join the stellar Calamos brand with its 40-year history is very exciting. John Calamos Sr. is an iconic investor who pioneered convertible securities investing in the liquid alternative space while John Koudounis is a proven leader known for his vision and ability to grow businesses. I look forward to being part of this extremely talented team," says Freund.
