BlackRock has appointed Jeffrey Rosenberg as managing director and chief investment strategist for fixed income.
Rosenberg will support the expansion of the firm’s U.S. retail fixed-income business and will report to Robert Stanley, head of retail fixed income with BlackRock’s portfolio management group. He will also work closely with Rick Rieder, chief investment officer of fundamental fixed income, in supporting fixed-income offerings in the Americas region, a strategic priority for BlackRock.
Rosenberg joined BlackRock from Bank of America Merrill Lynch where he was head of global credit strategy research.
In this role, his responsibilities included global macro credit strategy across corporate credit markets, coordination of U.S. fixed-income strategy across credit, ABS/RMBS/CMBS, interest rates, foreign exchange and commodities. He also formulated tactical and strategic risk-taking recommendations for external clients and internal trading desks.
Prior to joining BofA Merrill in 2002, Rosenberg was director of U.S. investment-grade strategy for Credit Suisse Group.
