The head of fixed income trading at Nordea Asset Management has left the firm following a business reorganisation, a spokesperson has confirmed.

Brett Chappell first joined Nordea’s banking division in 2001 as a chief sales manager for credit bonds, credit derivatives and interest rate derivatives.

He moved to Danske Bank in 2007 where he was head of DCM sales for almost eight years, selling credit bonds and other fixed income products to large institutional investors.

In 2014, Chappell returned to Nordea as head of fixed income trading within its asset management business based in Copenhagen. 

Jakob Jessen, head of illiquid execution at Nordea Asset Management, commented in a statement: “Due to a reorganisation at Nordea Asset Management, Brett Chappell has decided to seek new opportunities outside Nordea.

“We’ll like to thank Brett for his dedicated work during the last four years in the bank and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
