Julien Eberhardt will become co-manager of the Invesco Perpetual Global Financial Capital Fund and the Invesco Euro Corporate Bond Fund, while Thomas Moore becomes co-manager of the Invesco Perpetual High Yield Fund.
Eberhardt began his investment career at Moody’s as an analyst specialising in high yield and investment grade corporate issuers in the EMEA region. He joined Invesco Perpetual in 2008 as a high yield analyst before assuming coverage for the financials sector in 2012. He was promoted to deputy fund manager of the Invesco Perpetual Global Financial Capital Fund in 2014.
Moore has over 17 years’ experience working in fixed interest markets and joined the Invesco Perpetual Fixed Interest team earlier this year from Morgan Stanley & Co where he led its team of 12 European credit analysts.
The Invesco Perpetual Corporate Bond Fund will now be co-managed by co-head of fixed interest Paul Causer and Michael Matthews. Causer will step back from the Euro Corporate Bond fund.
Paul Read, who had been a manager on the Global Financial Capital, Corporate Bond and High Yield funds, steps back from these three to focus on other funds in the range.
The Invesco Perpetual fixed interest team manages £30bn across 28 products.
Causer said: “These developments really highlight the strength and depth of talent within Invesco Perpetual’s Fixed Interest team and there will be no change to the investment process. Julien, Thomas and Michael are talented investors committed to delivering superior investment returns for our clients – something that is at the heart of our investment philosophy. “Paul Read and I continue to focus on building a world class fixed interest capability to achieve best outcomes for our growing client base. Key to this is developing fund managers of the very highest calibre and ensuring that they are given investment responsibilities that reflect their expertise and experience. For us, this is the natural next step in their career progression and team development.”
