HSBC’s asset management arm has appointed a new senior portfolio manager on its emerging markets debt investment team.
Caroline Keany, who joined the $625bn asset manager on 6 September and is based in London, will co-manage the firm’s emerging markets corporate debt strategies alongside Julio Obeso. Keany reports to Bryan Carter, head of global emerging market debt.
Prior to her new post at HSBC, Keany worked at EMSO Asset Management, where she was senior portfolio manager and partner, leading emerging markets corporate debt investments. Keany, who studied at Harvard University, has also worked at Moore Capital Management, Macquarie Group and Morgan Stanley, according to her LinkedIn profile.
“Caroline has an exceptional background in managing EM corporate debt investments, both investment grade and high yield — particularly in alpha-generating hedge fund strategies,” said Carter in a 16 September statement.
“Her knowledge and experience will be essential in enabling our clients to explore the many opportunities that investing in EMD brings,” he added.
“I’m excited to be joining a firm and a team that prioritises fundamental research, core principles and values, and has a long term vision for the EM corporate credit asset class,” Keany said in a statement.
