Fixed income specialist, Ardea Investment Management, has appointed Jean Dumas as a portfolio manager with the investment strategy team and Darren Wadhera to the portfolio implementation team.
Dumas joined Ardea from Deutsche Bank, where he spent 10 years in senior fixed income research roles and 13 years in fixed income trading positions, focusing on global volatility and interest rate derivative markets.
Wadhera has 21 years’ global fixed income experience, including roles at Commonwealth Bank of Australia and ANZ Capital Markets.
Ardea’s principal and co-founder, Ben Alexander, said both additions would strengthen Ardea in key areas after its recent period of growth.
“Jean and Darren give us more bandwidth and depth of experience. They are a great fit for us both culturally and in terms of our rigorous investment approach,” he said.
