M&G names James Tomlins as co-manager on £1.3bn bond fund

M&G names James Tomlins as co-manager on £1.3bn bond fund

James Tomlins (pictured) has become co-manager of the M&G High Yield Corporate Bond fund, which he will run alongside existing manager Stefan Isaacs.

In his new capacity Tomlins will focus on stock selection for the £1.3 billion fund.   

'The M&G High Yield Corporate Bond fund has evolved into a global proposition, requiring greater investment resource to cover the larger investable universe.' Jim Leaviss, head of retail fixed interest at M&G Investments, said.

'James will largely be responsible for bottom-up stock selection, while Stefan will largely be responsible for duration strategy and regional asset allocation.'

Tomlins joined M&G in 2011 and became manager of the M&G European High Yield Bond fund and deputy manager of M&G High Yield Corporate Bond fund later that year. He previously worked at Cazenove Capital Management.
