Prudential Financial has hired a hedge fund economist to boost its emerging markets credit capabilities.

Prudential Fixed Income named Giancarlo Perasso lead economist for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Perasso joins the insurer from London-based hedge fund Matrix/Redux Funds, and will remain based in the British capital.

Prudential also hired Gerwin Bell, a former International Monetary Fund mission chief, as lead economist for Asia.

“Their skills will strengthen our analysis of global macro themes and country risk, adding to our existing foreign corporate investment grade and high-yield credit analysis,” Prudential Fixed Income CEO James Sullivan said.
