Columbia Threadneedle appoints head of high yield portfolio management EMEA


Columbia Threadneedle Investments has appointed Roman Gaiser to the role of Head of Portfolio Management, High Yield, EMEA. Based in London, Gaiser will report to Barrie Whitman, Head of High Yield, EMEA.

Subject to regulatory approval, Gaiser (pictured), will manage a number of European High Yield portfolios, including the Threadneedle European High Yield Bond Fund.
Gaiser was previously Head of High Yield at Pictet Asset Management from 2011 where he built and led the high yield team, managing several European high yield funds including a short duration strategy.

Mark Burgess, Deputy Global CIO and CIO, EMEA at Columbia Threadneedle Investments, says: “We are delighted that Roman is re-joining the European High Yield team at Columbia Threadneedle. He has previously worked with many of the team here and his style of investing in this asset class aligns with our approach. He brings with him extensive experience as a senior portfolio manager, managing a wide range of strategies. We have a well-established and highly regarded high yield franchise in EMEA, led by Barrie Whitman, and Roman’s appointment will continue to strengthen this capability as we deliver for our clients.”
