UK - Lazard Asset Management's Mark Pollard has quit as the firm's head of European Equities in order to reassess his life, a spokesman for the firm said.
According to the spokesman, Pollard left due to lifestyle reasons and not to join a rival firm. He joined the firm in July 2000 from Putnam where he was head of the European core equity team.
The spokesman added that Pollard will not be directly replaced and that instead his duties will be discharged to Simon Roberts and Gabrielle Boyle. Roberts is currently head of UK equities whilst Boyle runs the firm’s retail European Alpha Fund.
