RELATED TOPICS​

Didier Haenecour has been appointed as a fixed income manager by Vanguard Investments Europe, a fully-owned subsidiary of The Vanguard Group.

He will serve as co-portfolio manager for seven of the 12 Irish-domiciled Vanguard Investment Series funds.

Haenecour joins portfolio manager Gregory Davis, who has managed the funds since their inception.

This appointment marks the first time Vanguard has managed fixed income investments from its European headquarters.

Didier began his portfolio management career in London in 1993 with Chubb Investment Services. He has since worked as senior portfolio manager for Northern Trust Global Investments and as a director in the fixed income team at Prudential M&G.

Haenecour says: “Vanguard’s reputation as the world’s leading provider of high-value, low cost investment products and services is continually increasing, especially in the European market. I’m delighted to be joining Vanguard at such an exciting time.”

The funds that Didier co-manages are: Vanguard Euro Government Bond Index Fund; Vanguard Euro Investment Grade Bond Index Fund; Vanguard Eurozone Inflation-Linked Bond Index Fund; Vanguard UK Government Bond Index Fund; Vanguard UK Investment Grade Bond Index Fund; Vanguard 20+ Year Euro Treasury Index Fund; and Vanguard 30-40 Year Duration Euro Index Fund.

Paul Lohrey, Vanguard’s chief investment officer for Europe, says: “The addition of Didier to our investment team is a great opportunity to add someone with extensive experience who shares our values and will fit in well with Vanguard’s company culture. His appointment gives us the opportunity to leverage the robust technology infrastructure already in place for our European equity portfolio management for use in the fixed income arena, and provides us with more opportunities to grow those capabilities.”
