OppenheimerFunds said it has appointed Ruta Ziverte as a senior portfolio manager to the newly formed multi-sector fixed income team, reporting to Michael Mata who continues as lead portfolio manager for Oppenheimer Global Strategic Income Fund and is a portfolio manager of Oppenheimer Global High Yield Fund.

Jersey had been at Credit Suisse, where he was head of US interest rate strategy.
Taylor Watts joined in Denver as the senior client portfolio manager for the high yield corporate debt team. He most recently served at Knight Capital Group, where he was a managing director focused on trading below-investment grade debt with institutional accounts.
