Deutsche Asset & Wealth poaches HSBC macro boss Poole

Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (Deutsche AWM) has hired HSBC Global Asset Management's global head of macro and investment strategy as its new research boss.

Philip Poole (pictured) joins the firm after a nine-year stint with HSBC, which also included spells as global head of research and chief economist for emerging markets for the HSBC Group across asset classes.

Prior to this, he served at ING Barings and Barclays, where he was closely involved in sovereign debt restructurings in Ukraine and Poland respectively.

In his newly created London-based role at Deutsche AWM, Poole will lead research activity across the firm's investment platform globally, with responsibility for macro research.

He will also run micro research, providing portfolio managers with investable ideas across all asset classes. He will report to Deutsche AWM co-chief investment officers, Randy Brown and Asoka Wöhrmann.

Brown said in a statement: 'I am delighted to welcome an investment professional of Philip's calibre to the firm. Having a powerful global research function gives our investment teams a crucial edge as they strive to deliver superior performance to our clients. Philip will help us to make optimal use of our global research resources as well as the best external research.'
