Bob Michele, Global Chief Investment Officer of Fixed Income at J.P.

Both Bryan’s and Jeremy’s experience and depth of knowledge in fixed income markets will add significant new resource to our already strong fixed income capability.”

Since Michele’s appointment in September 2008, he has already hired several well-known fixed income specialists, such as Lisa Coleman and Stephen Lear as well as a number of credit analysts, to work along side them.

Michele continued: “We have worked hard over the last several months to hire in talent where we had gaps.  J.P. Morgan Asset Management has the resources and talent now to be considered a powerhouse in Global Fixed Income.”
