A year after joining BlackRock from Brevan Howard Asset Management, Ian Winship has a new fund of his own.
BlackRock said it has launched a fixed-income fund for Winship. The Absolute Return Bond Fund will invest across fixed income sectors, including the use of derivative strategies, the firm said. It will also seek to use BlackRock's 400-member fixed-income team to meet its absolute return targets.
"BackRock has a strong pedigree in the absolute return sector, having launched the U.K.'s first equity absolute return fund in 2005, and extending our range into the fixed-income space is a natural extension of this enterprise," Tony Stenning, head of BlackRock's U.K. retail business, said.
Winship was named a senior money manager on BlackRock's sterling fundamental fixed-income team last October. He was head of absolute return products at Brevan, and, prior to that, head of global rates at Aberdeen Asset Management.
