The TCW Group, a global independent asset management firm, today announced that Peter Van Gelderen will join the Firm as Global Co-Head of the Securitized Group. He joins Elizabeth (Liza) Crawford who has been Global Co-Head of Securitized since 2020.

He assumes his role in early October 2023 and will report to the firm’s Co-Chief Investment Officers Stephen Kane and Bryan Whalen.

Mr. Van Gelderen brings nearly two decades of experience in structured and securitized products. Most recently, he was Senior Portfolio Manager and Head of Securitized Markets at American Century Investments, where he was responsible for all Core, Core Plus, Income and Government mortgage funds and ETFs. Within Securitized Markets, he oversaw a broad range of products across credit sub-sectors.

Mr. Van Gelderen also served as a Senior Trader and Portfolio Manager for Structured Products at Stark Investments and Vice President of Whole Loan Transaction Management at Countrywide Securities Corporation.

“Under Liza’s leadership, our Securitized Group has done an exceptional job building our capabilities, anticipating our clients’ needs and driving strong results,” said Whalen. “Peter’s appointment will continue to enhance and expand the team’s coverage in order to support a broader investment base and continue to deliver outstanding investment results for our clients.”
