Stephen Pearson said: “These appointments form an important part of a broader objective to expand our Fixed Income and Multi-Asset capabilities and build on our recent success in this area. A more formal structure, with clearly defined roles, is an important step as we seek to develop our offering, and follows recent strengthening of the Fixed Income risk and technology infrastructure. My congratulations go to all those appointed to these roles.”
