Schroder Investment Management's Nicola Ralston is stepping down as the firm's global head of investment strategy and research in September, in order to spend more time with her family.
Ralston retires after 22 years at Schroders, of which the last two and a half years have been spent as the firm's head of global investment strategy. In the wake of her departure, Schroders has decided to split her duties among three of her staff.
Susan Haroun will become head of institutional investment, following Ralston's departure. Haroun, who was hired by Ralston from UBS Brinson, will work in close partnership with David Gasparro, Schroders' head of retail fund management and private banking.
Haroun and Gasparro will also be working with Tim Pette, who steps up to become the new global head of equity research. Pette joined Schroders last year from United States Trust.
