Swiss asset management house, Zurich Scudder Investments, is looking to bolster its research capabilities.
The move follow the recent appointment of Paul Wild and Dejan Srjic as vice-presidents at Zurich Scudder, as part of plans to expand its European portfolio department in Switzerland.
According to Zurich’s head of investments for Switzerland, Gerard Fischer, the firm is looking to add to its European credit analysis team with one analyst.
Fischer said that the criterion for this position - which is a junior post - “ideally” includes having a credit analysis background. There is no fixed deadline for applications as yet.
Zurich Scudder is also looking for an analyst for its balanced team. Fischer added that he is currently in discussion with several candidates, and aims to appoint during the next few weeks. The position requires experience of the Swiss institutional market.
Both posts will add to the existing 12-strong research capability and will complete the present recruitment drive and are based in Zurich.
