Bank-Loan Manager Added to Western Asset Short Duration High Income; Ratings Unchanged

Analyst Note

Western Asset formally added bank-loan manager Ryan Kohan to Western Asset Short Duration High Income on March 1, 2024. Kohan joined Western in 2019 as head of bank loans after managing bank-loan strategies at Sound Point Capital Management and has roughly 16 years of industry experience. It makes sense to name him as a comanager considering his increased contributions to the strategy. He will work alongside comanager co-CIO Mike Buchanan and high-yield manager Walter Kilcullen, who remains the lead here. At the same time, Western removed its co-CIO pro forma comanager Ken Leech on this strategy. These moves do not impact the strategy’s Above Average People or Average Process ratings.
