Zach Pandl joined Columbia Management as senior interest-rate strategist.
The position, heading the firm's interest-rate committee, is new, confirmed Colin Lundgren, managing director and head of fixed income at Columbia.
Mr. Pandl was a senior economist at Goldman Sachs, according to a Columbia news release. Goldman spokeswoman Leslie Shribman declined to comment.
In a telephone interview, Mr. Lundgren said Mr. Pandl will play important roles for Columbia both externally, helping the firm “articulate our views” around interest rates, and internally, providing value-added research and insights for Columbia's portfolio management teams at an “extremely interesting time” for monetary and fiscal policy.
