UK - JP Morgan Fleming Asset Management's head of Europe, Middle East and Africa, Hendrik van Riel, has announced his decision to leave and will be departing at the end of November.
Van Riel reported to Paul Bateman, head of JP Morgan Fleming Asset Management for EMEA, Asia and Japan.
A spokesman for the firm said: It's a personal decision by Hendrik - after 17 years with the company and 25 years in the industry, and with the integration of the two companies now complete, he believes it's time for him to do something else.
Going forward, Bateman continues to have overall responsibility for the EMEA region, as well as for Asia and Japan.
Mark White continues to have responsibility for the institutional business in EMEA and will now report directly to Paul Bateman.
