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.
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.
