Colchester Global Investors Global Government Bond Fund Secures Highly Recommended Rating from Lonsec and Recommended Rating from Zenith

Colchester Global Investors, a leading global sovereign bond manager, has secured a coveted Highly Recommended rating from Lonsec as a demonstration of their conviction in Colchester’s capability. This has been quickly followed with the release of a Recommended rating from Zenith.

These ratings have culminated with the recent hiring of Angela MacPherson as Head of Distribution Australia. She will be responsible for introducing Colchester’s Global Government Bond Fund to the Australian intermediary market place for the first time in a bid to capitalise on these strong research ratings and platform interest.

“We have a long-standing history managing money for many prestigious Australian institutions; over the last 12 years we’ve built funds under management of approximately $3 billion from strong consultant support. We are responding to our clients’ interest in us making our capabilities available to the financial planning segment via platforms. We’re very excited about the prospects for our expansion into this market and now also have the support of strong external research ratings”. Singapore Managing Director Paul Allen said.
