"We thank Des for his leadership and significant contributions in growing Standish's global presence as a leading provider of fixed income solutions and in establishing the business platform that has prepared Standish for its next chapter.  The Standish leadership team is focused squarely on delivering leading investment solutions to clients and Dave's knowledge of the global investment markets and long tenure with the firm will seamlessly build on the excellent work that Des and the entire Standish team have delivered to date," Arledge continued.

"Standish's focus is to provide innovative solutions for our clients' fixed income investment needs," said Mr. Leduc.  "We have a strong team-based investment process built around experienced and expert single and multi-sector investment teams.  We will continue to strengthen our investment capabilities while focusing on delivering the results our clients expect.
