MFS appoints new institutional portfolio manager

MFS has added to its global fixed income team with the appointment of Owen Murfin as institutional portfolio manager to the London-based team, where he would be working with clients in relation to MFS’ Global Credit and Aggregate strategies.

MFS director of fixed income in Europe, Pilar Gomez-Bravo, said the company had been growing its business outside the US over the last few years, and the appointment of Murfin would be integral to advancing MFS’ business strategy.

“Owen is an accomplished fixed income investor with an exemplary reputation,” she said. “His particular expertise and experience in global fixed income will complement and strengthen our existing team, and I look forward to working with him.”

Murfin said this was a unique opportunity to join an established firm with a growing fixed income business.

“In today’s world of low returns, increased regulation and growing market complexity, fixed income investors need more support than ever before,” he said. “I believe my portfolio management experience will be extremely valuable in helping our clients navigate these challenges.”

Murfin joined the MFS team from BlackRock, where he was fixed income portfolio manager for 15 years and responsible for a wide range of global government, aggregate, credit and investment mandates.
