Henderson adds O’Connor to multi-asset team

Henderson Global Investors has made the second appointment to its multi-asset team in a month by hiring Paul O’Connor as director of multi-asset.

O’Connor, who will join the team at the end of January, was previously head of asset allocation for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Mercer Investment Consulting. He spent 14 years at Credit Suisse as a strategist and proprietary trader before that.

O’Connor will report to Bill McQuaker, head of multi-asset and a former colleague at Credit Suisse.

“During the course of his career Paul has built a complete set of asset allocation skills spanning fixed income, equities, cash and alternatives,” says McQuaker. “Having worked with Paul for a number of years at Credit Suisse I am very familiar with how he operates.”

O’Connor’s move to Henderson follows the appointment of James de Bunsen, who joined in December as a fund manager in the multi-asset team. De Bunsen previously worked for Armstrong Investment Managers.

Henderson’s multi-asset division looks after £5.4 billion (€6.5 billion), as of the end of 2012, while the company as a whole had £65 billion under management at the end of September.
