ICG says goodbye to Halbard

Sara Halbard, a senior fund manager at ICML, the fund management subsidiary of Intermediate Capital Group, is to retire in June 2008.

Halbard said: “ICML now manages eight CDO’s and several institutional mandates with a team of 12 portfolio managers and research analysts. I am very proud of the credit team which we have built over many years and which includes John Barker, head of leveraged loans with 25 years of experience, Garland Hansmann, head of high yield with 12 years of experience, and David Ford, head of research, who has been in the markets since 1997. ICML’s credit committee also has substantial experience with a wealth of investment management experience between them and I am confident that I will leave the business in good hands”.
