Gartmore Investment Management plans to start using credit derivatives in its European bond funds. Richard Hodges, head of European fixed income in London, said it will likely start using the instruments as a way to synthetically short bonds from the end of February. It is waiting for approval from the Luxembourg regulator, which is where its bond funds are domiciled, before executing any trades.
