House, who left Threadneedle at the start of April, is joining the firm along with two former Threadneedle colleagues Mark Baker and Nicolas Jaquier.
Baker and Jaquier will both take up roles as investment directors in the global emerging markets bond team.
Rod Paris, head of Investments, Standard Life Investments said: ‘Standard Life Investments is committed to offering investors the widest range of investment opportunities and providing investment solutions tailored to client’s needs.
‘I believe that the strategic decision to increase our capability in emerging market bonds will enhance the suite of solutions we have designed to help clients achieve their investment targets. As well as bringing the ability to run emerging market bond mandates the new team will also enrich the many global fixed income and multi-asset strategies that are run by Standard Life Investments.’
House was at Threadneedle from 2007, prior to which he was a trader of emerging market bonds and currencies at Wadhwani Asset Management.
Baker was an investment specialist with the EM fixed income team from 2010 to 2012, prior to which he occupied other roles at the firm.
