LGIM’s bond expert North to exit
by Emma Dunkley on Jan 08, 2013 at 07:39
North, who was also head of global high yield bonds and a board director, founded the High Yield and Asset Allocation funds.
The manager went on extended sick leave in June 2011, which saw Ben Gill take on the management of DART. The fund was then moved out of the absolute return sector and renamed the Global Macro Themes fund, which now stands at £581 million.
LGIM confirmed North's departure but made no comment on his replacement.
