Allianz Global Investors has appointed Greg Saichin as head of global emerging market debt, effective from September.

Saichin was previously head of emerging markets and high yield fixed income portfolio management at Pioneer Investments, and has over 20 years of experience in emerging markets, the past 13 as a portfolio manager.

In the past year, Allianz Global Investors has enhanced its offering in areas including emerging market debt, infrastructure debt, infrastructure equity and regional Asian bonds.

“With the secular rebalancing of global growth from OECD markets toward emerging economies, emerging market debt is becoming an increasingly significant and attractive asset class for long-term investors. The superior growth rates will be sustained through higher rates of investment, much of which will be debt-funded,” said Andreas Utermann, co-head and global chief investment officer at Allianz GI.
