Matthew Cobon head of interest rates and currency at Columbia Threadneedle has left the firm.
Cobon officially left the firm on March 28,which was initially reported by our sister site Citywire Selector.
A spokesperson confirmed to Citywire Selector that responsibilities for the funds passed to Adrian Hilton, who currently runs the Threadneedle (Lux) European Strategic Bond fund. Hilton will also serve as head of interest rates and currency.
Cobon had first assumed control of the funds following Martin Harvey’s exit in February 2016.
Prior to Cobon’s exit, Columbia Threadneedle closed Cobon's Threadneedle Target Return fund due to a fall in assets under management.
The Threadneedle (Lux)-Global Strategic Bond fund lost 10.85% in US dollar terms, over the three years to the end of March 2017. This compares with its Citywire-assigned benchmark, the Citi WGBI TR USD, which lost 3.55% over the same time period.
