Chorlton has been with Schroders since 2013 when he joined the firm’s New York office following the acquisition of STW Fixed Income in the United States, and he returned to the United Kingdom in August 2019.
Taking over Chorlton’s current role will be Lisa Hornby, who is based in New York. Hornby is the current Fixed Income Fund Manager and will take over Chorlton’s responsibilities as Head of US Multi-Sector Fixed Income.
Commenting on the changes, Charles Prideaux, Schroders’ Global Head of Investment, said in the statement: “Andy will build on the strength of Schroders Fixed Income investment platform, which delivers investment research and high alpha flagship strategies alongside investment solutions to meet clients’ increasingly complex investment needs. Andy’s fixed income investment experience meant he was the stand-out candidate to succeed Philippe and we are convinced he will continue to drive our focus on client performance as well as the growth of the platform.
“We would like to thank Philippe for all his hard work and dedication in helping to establish a successful Fixed Income business which now oversees more than £100 billion in assets. The business boasts a strong bench of investment talent and Schroders wishes him all the best for the future. These changes demonstrate Schroders’ commitment to career development and supporting its in-house expertise.”
