Delaware Investments Adds Co-Head of Fixed Income

PHILADELPHIA--()--Delaware Investments has appointed Roger Early as co-head of fixed income investments, formalizing a role he has been assuming for many months. Early continues with his portfolio management duties and in his role as co-CIO of the firm’s total return strategies. The change was effective December 5, 2014.

“This is a formal acknowledgement of his contributions to Delaware Investments fixed income.”

He co-leads the fixed income group with See Yeng Quek, who has been in the role since 2004.

In 2010, Delaware Investments joined Macquarie Group, an Australia-based financial services firm, and has since seen increased opportunity for growth on a global scale.

“In recent years, we’ve significantly expanded our domestic and international client base. To ensure that we continue to provide a high level of client service, and that all of our clients have access to us, it became clear that we needed to modify the management structure of the team,” said Quek. “Now, in addition to our collaborating on client relationships and growing the business, Roger and I will share other management and mentoring duties, which we believe will benefit our clients as well as our team members.

“Roger is a key leader on our team who has worked closely with me throughout the years,” continued Quek. “This is a formal acknowledgement of his contributions to Delaware Investments fixed income.”

Early has been with the firm a total of 14 years, most recently as co-CIO for total return fixed income strategy, a position he continues to hold. In his prior tenure with the firm (1994–2001), he was a senior portfolio manager, and departed as head of U.S. investment grade fixed income. He rejoined Delaware Investments in 2007.
