GLOBAL - Aberdeen Asset Management has hired Paul Griffiths as global head of fixed income.
He will remain in his current position until completion - scheduled to be the
end of June - when he will assume full-time responsibility for the operation and co-ordination of Aberdeen's fixed income business.
He will also become a member of Aberdeen Group's management board.
Griffiths succeeds Gary Bartlett who is leaving the company.
Based in London, Paul will work closely with Aberdeen's existing regional heads of fixed income, as well as the heads of the respective investment teams.
During the interim period, Aberdeen chief investment officer Anne Richards, will oversee the fixed income teams.
Richards said: "The extreme market conditions of the past 18 months have tested many fixed income platforms. The acquisition of various businesses from Credit Suisse provides us with the opportunity to appoint someone who brings experience and knowledge of managing global fixed income businesses and we welcome Paul to the group."
