Jenna Barnard

Jenna Barnard graduated from Oxford University with a BA degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics. She started her career with Orbitex Investments Ltd as an inverstment analyst. Jenna joined Henderson Global Investors in 2002 as a credit analyst and assistant portfolio manager. In 2004 she became a credit portfolio manager and in 2005 she took charge of the Henderson Strategic High Yield Bond fund and the Preference and Bond fund alongside John Pattullo.

John Pattullo

Having graduated from St Andrews University in 1993 with a degree in economics, John Pattullo began his career as an audit supervisor with Price Waterhouse Coopers. After a four-year stint at the accountancy firm, his career took a different path when he joined Henderson Global Investors as a trainee manager. The Edinburgh-born manager’s rise within his new company was rapid. In the ten years he has been involved in fund management he has risen to the position of director of retail credit within the group. Outside of fund management, Pattullo enjoys tennis, and his appreciation of golf seems to be at odds with Mark Twain’s description of the sport being ‘a good walk spoiled’.

Nicholas Ware-Fredriksson joined Henderson as a director of loans in 2009. In 2012, he joined the Strategic Fixed Income team as director of Strategic Fixed Income. His career began in 1995 when he joined PricewaterhouseCoopers and qualified as a chartered accountant; he then moved to Ford Credit where he was responsible for establishing its subsidiary in Sweden. After working there for two years Nicholas spent two years as at SEB Merchant Bank originating senior and mezzanine transactions in the Nordic market. He then spent two years at Ahli United Bank (UK) originating small and mid market private equity transactions. In 2004, he moved to credit fund manager New Amsterdam Capital Management as a senior credit analyst and in 2005 moved to credit hedge fund manager Highland Capital Management as a senior portfolio analyst in which he helped to build its European business. He graduated from Bournemouth University, with a BA Hons in business studies and is a qualified Chartered Accountant.
