    A Roadmap for Fixed Income Investing in a Pandemic Economy

    -A Zoom Meeting

    Covid-19 has thrown a wrench in all risk markets in 2020, forcing asset managers to look deeper in their playbooks to manage their risk while seeking investment opportunities. Monumental fiscal and monetary stimulus programs have buoyed markets but are not themselves curative of the underlying cause of the economic shutdown.

    During the presentation, Eddy Vataru, a portfolio manager with experience in passive, active, and hedge fund strategies, will provide a framework for reviewing the current landscape in fixed income in the context of central bank intervention. He will help identify opportunities and potential pitfalls in the current market and share insights from his experience during the Global Financial Crisis of 2007-2008.

    Eddy Vataru graduated from California Institute of Technology (B.S. Chemistry & Economics) and from Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis (M.B.A.). Mr. Vataru holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation. Prior to joining Osterweis Capital Management in 2016, Mr. Vataru worked in senior management positions at Incapture, LLC and Citadel, LLC. Prior to that he spent over 11 years at BlackRock (formerly, Barclays Global Investors), where his last position was as Managing Director and Head of U.S. Rates and Mortgages. While in this role, BGI worked with the U.S. Treasury in implementing its Agency MBS Purchase Program, buying mortgages for the U.S. government from 2008-2009. Mr. Vataru is a principal of Osterweis Capital Management and the lead Portfolio Manager for the total return fixed income strategy.
