Schroders bolsters convertible bond team

Stefan KrauseUK-based investment manager Schroders has hired Stefan Krause as portfolio manager in its convertible bond team in Zurich.

He will work alongside Peter Reinmuth as co-manager of the Schroder Global Conservative Convertible Bond Fund.

Stefan joins Schroders from Man Investments where he was responsible for managing the Man Convertibles Europe Fund. Prior to joining Man in 2012, Stefan spent two years with Warburg Invest in Hamburg as a portfolio manager for European convertibles and almost five years with UBS in Zurich.

The hire coincides with the first anniversary of Schroder ISF Global Conservative Bond fund.

“Stefan will concentrate on our more conservative convertible strategies, which have performed exceptionally well, especially with the high level of capital protection in recent highly volatile markets,” said Reinmuth.
