TwentyFour Asset Management, the London- and New York-based specialist fixed income investor, has announced the appointment of two new partners from within its portfolio management team.
Felipe Villarroel, a portfolio manager on the Multi-Sector Bond team, and Douglas Charleston, a portfolio manager for the firm’s Asset-Backed Securities funds, will become partners early in the first quarter of 2019.
Villarroel, 34, and Charleston, 35, will be the 12th and 13th members of the partnership founded in 2008. They joined the firm in 2011 and 2013, respectively.
