Bond manager Dieter van de Voorde has quit KBC Asset Management after 12 years to join Banque Internationale à Luxembourg, Citywire Selector has learned.
Van de Voorde stepped down from KBC Asset Management at the end of 2017 and formally assumed his new post with BIL at the start of this month.
During his tenure with KBC Asset Management, van de Voorde had overseen four bond funds covering emerging Europe, Europe excluding the EMU, SRI high yield and a currency-focused fund.
My Huong Trinh, who was assigned to co-run the KBC Multi Interest Currencies fund alongside van de Voorde last summer, will remain on this strategy. Van de Voorde had taken on the fund from Olivier de Timmerman in April 2015.
This marks the latest change within the KBC Asset Management bond unit, which earlier this month named Lazlo Belgrado as head of fixed income fund and portfolio management.
This followed an internal reorganisation in which roles were more clearly distributed among the three department heads.
