HSBC Global Asset Management’s Philip Poole has left the group to join rival Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (DeAWM) in the newly-created role of head of research.
Mr Poole, most recently global head of macro and investment strategy at HSBC Gam, will lead research activity across DeAWM’s investment teams globally, contributing to the group’s house view on asset classes and running micro research to help fund managers create investable ideas.
The group said he would also play a “prominent role” in presenting DeAWM’s investment views to clients.
Mr Poole will be based in London and report to co-chief investment officers, Randy Brown and Asoka Wöhrmann.
Mr Poole was global head of research and chief economist for emerging markets for the HSBC Group across asset classes and prior to this worked at ING, Barings and Barclays.
