Schroders appoints Deputy Head of Credit for Europe

Schroders is today announcing that it has appointed a Deputy Head of Credit for Europe as the firm continues to grow its global credit capability in response to clients’ evolving investment needs.

Julien Houdain has assumed the newly-created role and will be based in London. He will report into Patrick Vogel, Head of Credit for Europe.

Julien will manage the recently launched Schroder ISF[1] Global Credit Income Short Duration fund, and will work alongside Patrick and the credit team on Schroders’ credit strategy.

He joins from Legal & General Investment Management where he was most recently Head of Global Bond Strategies, having joined the asset manager in 2007.

Patrick Vogel, Head of Credit for Europe, commented:

“Julien is a highly-valued addition to Schroders’ credit platform. He has a great deal of experience in managing complex Global Credit strategies and identifying opportunities to deliver robust performance for clients. Julien will complement our ability to manage risk across global credit markets in a dynamic way.

“This, combined with Julien’s experience in quantitative investment techniques, adds to the considerable strength and depth of Schroders’ credit capability.”

In November, Schroders announced it had hired Saida Eggerstedt as Head of Sustainable Credit, another newly-created role which entails working in partnership with Schroders’ Sustainability and Fixed Income teams.

Schroders manages £78.1 billion* in fixed income strategies on behalf of its clients globally, representing almost a fifth of the firm’s total assets under management.

*As at 30 June 2019
