Aberdeen not replacing head of EMEA fixed income role
Aberdeen Asset Management has said it will not hire a replacement for the role of head of Europe, Middle East and Asia (EMEA) fixed income after Charles McKenzie departed for JPMorgan Asset Management.
Instead the firm said some of Mr McKenzie’s responsibilities have been taken over by Paul Griffiths, global head of fixed income.
Aberdeen said the remainder of Mr McKenzie’s responsibilities will be assumed by either Brad Crombie, deputy head of fixed income, or Steven Nicholls, head of EMEA client portfolio managers, both of whom report to Mr Griffiths.
Mr Crombie joined Aberdeen as a graduate in 2000 and re-joined the company in February 2012 from Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
Mr Nicholls, who joined Aberdeen in April 2011, was previously head of the UK institutional client service team at Pimco.
