UK - Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) has appointed Aberdeen Asset Management's Nick Griffiths as head of global rates.
Griffiths, who is currently co-head of interest rates and co-head of global portfolios at Aberdeen, will join LGIM in September reporting to head of fixed income Roger Bartley.
Prior to joining Aberdeen in 2009 he spent more than 11 years at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, where he was co-head of the government and agency alpha team.
Bartley SAID: "Nick will be a great asset to LGIM and will develop and diversify our approach to global rates strategies. His substantial industry experience and background lends itself well to strengthening our overall fixed income proposition."
