Investec Asset Management has bolstered its emerging market (EM) fixed income team by hiring Esther Chan and Alan Siow.
The pair join from Ashmore Asset Management and Bluebay Asset Management respectively.
They will work on Investec's EM corporate debt team, which is headed by Victoria Harling and runs the Investec Corporate Debt fund.
Investec's co-CEO Domenico Ferrini said the appointments "underscore our commitment to delivering EM credit investment opportunities to our international client base".
Ferrini added: "Their appointment to our experienced and established team will add valuable portfolio management and product experience to this growing area."
Chan was a portfolio manager within Ashmore's EM corporate high yield team, while Siow oversaw Bluebay's EM Corporate High Income funds. He also led the firm's EM Local Currency funds, as well as working on sector-specific analysis.
