Credit Suisse has appointed Graham Duce as Head of Credit Suisse Asset Management’s UK Multi-Manager Platform (MMP).
Duce was previously responsible for developing Credit Suisse Asset Management’s Multi Asset Class Solutions (MACS) relationship with the private banking arm of the giant Swiss bank across the UK.
In his new role, Duce will be responsible for managing the funds, and ensuring that the investment process delivers strong performance. He will also be responsible for developing and implementing the business strategy for Asset Management’s UK Multi-Manager service. He will report to Ed Robertiello, Head of Research and Selection for MMP within Asset Management’s Funds and Alternative Solutions unit.
Duce is joined by Rob Bowie, an experienced multi-manager portfolio manager with over 12 years of industry experience. Prior to joining Credit Suisse, Bowie was part of running the Artemis multi-manager business in the UK, which was acquired by Credit Suisse in 2005.
“Graham brings to this role considerable experience as a business builder, and has a strong track record as a successful multi-asset portfolio manager,” says Stephen Smith, Head of Funds and Alternative Solutions. “We are committed to having a strong asset management business in the UK, which includes our multi-manager business, and our intention is to grow this going forward. We are also committed to ensuring that we have the best possible talent and resources in place to serve the needs of our clients, and both Graham and Rob will play a key role in that process.”
Ed Robertiello says “Graham has been with Credit Suisse for over five years, and in that time has built a substantial multi-manager, multi-asset class business for our Private Banking clients, including both high net worth individuals and institutions. We are confident that Graham, with over 20 years of industry experience, will have the same success with our UK multi-manager client base that he had in his previous role.”
