Susan Dziubinski: Hi, I'm Susan Dziubinski for Morningstar. Last month, we introduced the Morningstar Awards for Investing Excellence. We nominated several topnotch professionals for the Rising Talent Award. Here's a look at some of the nominees and their funds.
Emory Zink: A few factors contribute to our confidence in core bond manager Pramod Atluri. First, prior to his appointment at Capital Group in late 2015, Atluri gained experience as a credit analyst and comanager at Fidelity Investments. Between his experience at Fidelity and at Capital Group, he gained valuable insight at two substantial core bond shops. Second, over his tenure at Capital Group, he integrated smoothly with their collaborative culture, and he simultaneously managed to introduce new perspectives for managing and monitoring risks in portfolios. These positive attributes support his appointment as a principal investment officer at the end of this year when he succeeds long-tenured manager John Smet as the lead portfolio manager on the firm's core bond offering American Funds Bond Fund of America.
