Muzinich was founded in New York by George Muzinich in 1988. The Firm started managing high yield corporate bond portfolios in September 1990. Since its beginning, the Firm has focused on a relationship-based institutional business that has stressed the importance of producing consistently attractive risk-adjusted returns from research-intensive investments in corporate credit.

In 1999 the Firm added a wholly owned London subsidiary, Muzinich & Co. Limited, to oversee the European strategies among our client portfolios. Both the New York and London offices are staffed with portfolio management, research, trading, compliance, marketing/client service, and administrative professionals.  Accounting and operations functions are domiciled primarily in the Firm’s New York headquarters.  In 2005, Muzinich added a Cologne office (which relocated to Frankfurt in April 2016); in 2009, a Paris office; in 2013, a Zurich office; in 2014, a Milan office; and in 2015, Madrid and Manchester offices.   The Frankfurt and Zurich offices primarily provide additional client servicing and marketing in Europe, while the Paris, Milan, Madrid, and Manchester offices house both investment and client relations professionals.
