LONDON — John Monckton, managing director-bonds at U.K. money manager Legal & General Investment Management, was killed Nov. 30 in an attack at his home in Chelsea, London. His wife, Homeyra, was wounded in the attack.
According to a Metropolitan Police statement, two youths who had forced their way into the Moncktons' house through the front door were being sought.
Mr. Monckton, 49, oversaw £34 billion ($64.39 billion) in active fixed income at L&G and was responsible for asset allocation at the firm, said Steve Leach, L&G spokesman.
"John will be greatly missed by his colleagues … he had a deep insight into financial markets. He built up a strong team who admired him greatly and will carry on his work," said Tim Breedon, L&G group director, investments.
The firm has not yet named a successor to Mr. Monckton.
