Janus Henderson hires Columbia Threadneedle bond boss Cielinski

Janus Henderson Investors has appointed Columbia Threadneedle Investments’ long-time head of fixed income, Jim Cielinski, as global head of fixed income.

Cielinski has 30 years investment management experience, most recently as global head of fixed income at Columbia Threadneedle. He will join the firm on 1 November.

Colin Lundgren, who has been with Columbia Threadneedle for 31 years, will assume Cielinski's role. 

'Jim brings a wealth of experience managing fixed income investment teams and I am excited to work alongside such an accomplished investment professional,' said Enrique Chang, Janus Henderson global chief investment officer.

'The addition of Jim is a testament to Janus Henderson’s ability to attract a strong team of global investment professionals committed to delivering superior risk-adjusted returns for clients.'

Before joining Columbia Threadneedle in 2010, Cielinski spent 12 years at Goldman Sachs Asset management as managing director and head of credit, handling sector allocations for $200 billion (£148 billion) in client assets.  

Previously, he was head of fixed income for Utah Retirement Systems, assistant manager of taxable fixed income for Brown Brothers Harriman & Co, and equity portfolio manager for First Security Investment Management.

Lundgren, who is currently deputy global head of fixed income, has been with the company for 31 years. He will report to Colin Moore, global chief investment officer at Columbia Threadneedle.
