Grillo as co-head of the strategy along with Mardarovici. Grillo remains
an active member of the team until June, working closely with Hillmeyer,
Mardarovici, and the entire fixed income team to ensure a smooth
transition. There will be no changes to the team’s style, philosophy, or
investment process.

“Daniela and David co-leading the US Core Plus strategy is part of a
thoughtful succession plan and a natural transition for the team,” said
Brett Lewthwaite, global co-head of fixed income. “Paul has always put
the needs of our clients first. We are grateful for his efforts over
many years and wish him all the best in his retirement.”
