Barrie Whitman

Barrie Whitman has had more than 15 years' experience in the specialised arena of high-yield debt. He started out in 1987 at United Bank of Kuwait as a credit analyst, moving on to become a fund manager and CIO for high yield investments at the bank. Whitman moved to Standard Bank in 1997 and then to Columbia Threadneedle two years later where he is now head of European high yield. He employs a bottom-up approach to bond selection, and, in common with all Columbia Threadneedle managers, is involved in the house’s renowned teamwork-based style of investment.


The aim of the Fund is to provide income with the potential to grow the amount you invested as well. The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in high income paying Euro or British Pound bonds (which are similar to a loan and pay a fixed or variable interest rate) issued by companies in Europe or companies that have significant operations there. High income paying bonds are bonds that have received lower ratings from international agencies that provide such ratings. These bonds are considered riskier than higher rated bonds but typically pay a higher income.
