Henderson appoints multi-asset funds director

Henderson has appointed Paul O'Conner, former partner of Mercer Investment Consulting, as director of its multi-asset funds.

O'Conner will report to head of multi-asset Bill McQuaker and will work on asset allocation, product development and client servicing.

At Mercer , he was head of asset allocation in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region and before that, spent 14 years at Credit Suisse as a strategist and propriety trader.

McQuaker said: 'During the course of his career Paul has built a complete set of asset allocation skills spanning fixed income, equities, cash and alternatives.

'Having worked with Paul for a number of years at Credit Suisse I am very familiar with how he operates. Given the team approach we take, his collegiate style will be extremely valuable. He will be a great addition to our team and to Henderson as a whole.'

This is the second hire to the multi-asset team following the appointment of James de Bunsen from Armstrong Investment Managers as a fund manager in the team in December 2012.
