JPMorgan Convertible manager exits – JPMorgan Global Convertibles Income Fund Limited has announced that Antony Vallee, one of the company’s fund managers, has decided to leave J.P. Morgan Asset Management to pursue other opportunities.
The existing investment management team, led by Natalia Bucci and Robin Dunmall will be augmented by the addition of Paul Levene.
Paul has over 18 years’ relevant experience. Prior to joining J.P. Morgan Asset Management in 2015, Paul was a partner and senior analyst at Ferox Capital LLP, a convertible bond manager, where he was responsible for identifying investment ideas in Europe and Asia.

We expect his contribution, alongside that of Natalia Bucci, Robin Dunmall and the convertible bond team at J.P. Morgan Asset Management will position the company well for the future. On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Antony Vallee for his efforts in managing the company’s portfolio since its launch in 2013.”
