Mike Riddell’s work here is done

Mike Riddell, who worked in and around the bond team here at M&G for the past twelve years, has decided to move on. We can’t say where to yet, but it’s to another big bond fund manager and it’s a good move for him. Normally we’d ask the airbrushing team to have him removed from the official histories, but he did a great job for us and we are all sad to see him go.


Mike did a great job running government bond portfolios for clients, as well as writing some of our most popular blogs (lots of good and prescient stuff on China, emerging markets and peripheral Europe).

Apart from declaring that he was a shoe-in to run the 400m for Wales at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games (coulda woulda shoulda) he never let us down. Journalists and future clients should note however that his famous “Blue Steel” publicity photograph does not reflect the reality of Mike today. See below.

Good luck Mike!


The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
