GAM Star Credit Opportunities research team expands with appointment of Anthony Giret as analyst
Atlanticomnium, manager of the GAM Star Credit Opportunities strategy, has appointed Anthony Giret as a credit analyst on its research team. Anthony is based in Geneva and reports to Romain Miginiac, Head of Research at Atlanticomnium.
The GAM Star Credit Opportunities strategy seeks to generate steady income from the bonds of quality companies, with a focus on subordinated debt to capture higher yields. The investment team, which has been managing assets for GAM since 1985, invests across the capital structure of banks, insurers and corporates.
In his role, Anthony will analyse corporates, with a particular focus on the hybrid debt of investment grade issuers. His appointment follows the appointment of Yi Qian, who joined the firm from AXA Group as a credit analyst in December 2019.
Prior to joining Atlanticomnium, Anthony spent seven years as a credit analyst at Spread Research, an independent credit research firm and credit rating agency, where he predominantly covered corporate bonds in the European high yield market. He was also responsible for issuing and monitoring Spread Research’s credit ratings, and analysing private debt issuances. Anthony holds a master’s degree in finance from IAE Lyon as well as the CFA designation.
Anthony Smouha, CEO of Atlanticomnium and manager of the GAM Star Credit Opportunities strategy, said: “Anthony brings strong credit analysis experience and he will add greater depth and breadth to our team of analysts. His appointment and the expansion of the research team represents our continued commitment to delivering for our clients.”
