UK - Fidelity International announced that Nick Baulch has been appointed as a relationship director for the UK institutional client relationship team.
With over 20 years’ experience in the asset management industry, Baulch moved to Fidelity from Deutsche Asset Management, which is now Aberdeen Management.
At Deutsche Asset Management, he led a team of three client directors and was responsible for segregated and large pooled clients.
Prior to this, Baulche spent 10 years at Henderson Administration, initially as a senior fund manager then as head of pooled pension funds.
In his new role with Fidelity International, he will be reporting to senior investment director Peter Yarrow.
“His extensive knowledge of the UK market will add further resource to our existing team and our clients will benefit from his experience,” said Yarrow in his comments on Baulche’s appointment.
A company spokesperson said Baulch needs to first evaluate his position before speaking to the media about his plans with Fidelity itself.
