PGIM has appointed Katharine Neiss to the newly-created role of chief European economist in its fixed income business.
Joining from the Bank of England, where she worked for more than 20 years, forms part of PGIM’s Fixed Income’s global macroeconomic research team, headed by Nathan Sheets, former undersecretary of the US Treasury for international affairs. She is based in London.
At the Bank of England, Neiss’ previous roles included head of the policy, strategy and implementation division and senior manager roles in both the international economic analysis and structural economic analysis divisions.
Sheets said: “Understanding the role of macroeconomics in market behaviour has long been an important focus for us and in these extremely uncertain times becomes even more critical.”
