UK - Rothschild Asset Management (RAM) has appointed Abdallah Nauphal as its new head of fixed income & currency.
Nauphal, previously fixed income chief at Schroder Investment Management in London, joins RAM this week after a four month break from the industry. He replaces Ceris Williams, who has agreed to stay on at the firm for the next six months to assist with the transition process.
Paul Manduca, RAM's chief executive, said: Abdallah Nauphal has over 20 years’ experience in fixed income and currency management and has covered a wide range of the major assets within this field. He is highly regarded by the investment consulting community in the UK and overseas and we look forward to his arrival.
Nauphal left Schroders at the end of May, and the firm quickly replaced him with Bob Michele. Michele headed up Schroders fixed income operations in New York before his promotion.
