Franklin Templeton expands emerging markets debt team

Stephanie Ouwendijk, formerly at Ashmore Group, joins Franklin Templeton Investments, bringing the emerging markets debt opportunities team back up to four.

Ouwendijk, a portfolio manager, is based in London and will report to William Ledward, senior vice president and portfolio manager. The team currently manages over $10 billion (€8.8 billion) for institutional investors.

Ouwendijk’s appointment brings the investment team back up to four portfolio managers/analysts, following the departure of Claire Husson-Citanna last year.

Ouwendijk was at Ashmore as a fund manager since June 2010. Most recently, she was part of a team responsible for external debt and blended debt funds, and in particular was in charge of Central and Eastern Europe and Africa sovereign and quasi-sovereign credits.

Prior to working at Ashmore, Ouwendijk was an emerging markets analyst and portfolio assistant at Gulf International Bank Asset Management.

Franklin Templeton Investments has over $871 billion in assets under management, as of January 31, 2015.
