LOS ANGELES – August 12, 2015 – The TCW Group, a global asset management firm, announced today that Jeff Nuruki, CFA, has joined the firm as a Senior Vice President for the Emerging Markets team.  In this role, he is responsible for credit research in the oil and gas and consumer sectors.  He is based in TCW’s Los Angeles headquarters and reports to Javier Segovia, head of Emerging Markets Corporate Credit Research.

“The significant differences between emerging economies and the corporations within those markets make analyzing individual credits highly complex,” said Segovia.  “The depth of Jeff’s experience in this area will be a great asset to us, particularly as we continue to see opportunities in emerging market corporate debt.  We are pleased to welcome him to the team and look forward to his contributions.”

Nuruki has nearly 20 years of experience as an emerging markets credit analyst, corporate valuation analyst and management consultant.  Prior to joining TCW, he was a senior credit analyst at Western Asset Management Company (WAMCO), where he helped develop the firm’s emerging markets corporate credit business.  Prior to WAMCO, he held various senior-level research and consulting positions with Standard & Poor’s, BearingPoint and KPMG.
