UK - Henderson Global Investors has appointed Chris Wozniak as director of global asset allocation in its fixed interest team, based in the UK.
Wozniak has transferred from Henderson’s New Zealand office and will report to John Sharman, global head of Henderson’s fixed interest team.
Paul Dyer, previously head of investment strategy, has been appointed to replace Wozniak as chief investment officer in New Zealand.
Commenting, Sharman said: “[The appointment] builds on the recent strengthening of Henderson’s global fixed interest capability, where in July we established an operation in the US, and last month in Singapore.”
In the US, Henderson has a team of five credit specialists, headed by Harry Resis and Daniel Doyle. More recently, senior portfolio manager, Tim Swadling, transferred from the UK to Singapore, to establish Henderson’s regional fixed interest capability.
