GAM poaches from Deutsche Bank for EM role

GAM poaches from Deutsche Bank for EM role

GAM Investments has hired Markus Heider as an investment manager to join its emerging markets fixed income team in London.

Heider joins from Deutsche Bank in London, where his last held role was global head of inflation research. He began his career at Deutsche Bank in 2000, before moving into various inflation and interest rate strategy roles.

At GAM, Heider will join the team that manages $11 billion worth of assets in funds, employing a conviction-based investment approach, driven by macroeconomic trends in emerging markets.

The former economist reports to investment director Paul McNamara, who is the lead manager on emerging market bond and currency long only and hedge fund strategies.

While the company did not disclose the funds to be managed by Heider, a spokesperson told Citywire Asia that his portfolio will cover 15-20 emerging markets including Asia.

With $169.4 billion assets globally, GAM manages active funds and products for institutions, financial intermediaries and private investors.
