About Richard Woolnough

Richard Woolnough has more than twenty years of experience in fixed interest investment. Born in Chesterfield in 1964, Woolnough graduated from the London School of Economics and started his fixed interest career with Italian group Assicurzioni Generali in 1987. He then joined SBC Warburg as a sterling instruments trader before moving to Old Mutual in 1995 where he was responsible for the Old Mutual Corporate Bond fund and Old Mutual UK Fixed Interest long-term bond fund. Woolnough made the switch to M&G Investments early in 2004 to take charge of the firm’s Corporate Bond fund. He currently manages this and the Strategic Corporate Bond fund which was launched in February 2004. Both the Corporate Bond fund and the Strategic Corporate Bond fund invest mostly in investment grade corporate bonds, although the Strategic Corporate Bond fund holds far fewer stocks, and takes larger duration and credit positions. Woolnough also manages the M&G Optimal Income fund, which can invest wherever the manager sees best value in the fixed income universe.
