Patnaik will report to Anton Eser, deputy head of global fixed income and has been tasked with building L&G’s emerging market debt capability.

He has more than 25 years’ experience in the emerging market debt sector and was most recently chief investment officer at Gulf International Bank, where his main responsibility was managing the flagship EMD hedge fund. Prior to GIB he worked as an emerging market debt trader at Bear Stearns and Merrill Lynch.
