Carmignac has appointed European bond specialist Marie-Anne Allier to co-manage two of its leading fixed income funds.
She will work alongside Keith Ney in directing the €11.86 billion Carmignac Sécurité fund, which now has a thirty-year track record, as well as the smaller Carmignac Portfolio Sécurité fund.
This is a new position created to reinforce the expertise that the French asset manager has in European government debt and credit markets.
Her co-manager Ney also manages the firm’s Porfolio Patrimonie Europe with head of European equities Mark Denham.
“Carmignac’s fixed income franchise has developed significantly over the past years,” said a source close to Carmignac. “This has led us to invest heavily in strengthening our teams of portfolio managers and analysts, and broaden our expertise in fixed income to expand the performance drivers underlying our conviction-based management.”
Based in Paris, Allier will report to head of fixed income Rose Ouahba.
Carmignac Sécurité was the original fund in the company’s euro fixed income strategy. Carmignac Portfolio Sécurité is a sub-fund of the Luxembourg Carmignac Portfolio Sicav and has been active since 2013.
