Legal & General Investment Management’s head of global fixed income distribution has left the asset manager to join a corporate credit specialist firm.
Simon Males will join Muzinich & Co as head of institutional business - a newly created role - overseeing development of the firm’s UK client base and consultant relationships.
Males has extensive experience working on the buy-side having also worked at Pictet Asset Management as head of institutional business for five years.
George Muzinich, chairman and chief executive at Muzinich & Co, explained: “Males shares our strong belief in the importance of nurturing long-term client relationships based on trust and value-added performance.”
The addition to the team at Muzinich & Co comes as part of its plans to expand globally and follows a string of other senior leadership appointments.
Markus Taubert, formerly a head of institutional business at BlackRock, joined Muzinich & Co earlier this year as head of sales for Germany and Austria.
