Aviva Investors manager Nick Samouilhan is to join US firm T Rowe Price as part of its multi-asset solutions team.
Mr Samouilhan previously worked on Aviva Investors' flagship multi-strategy absolute return (Aims) team, and was co-manager on its £2.2bn Target Income product.
He will now join former Axa Investment Managers' multi-asset head Yoram Lustig at T Rowe Price as the firm looks to expand its multi-asset business. Mr Lustig was head of multi-asset funds for Aviva Investors prior to his time at Axa IM.
T Rowe Price said Mr Samouilhan would join the Emea team in November this year, reporting to Mr Lustig.
Mr Samouilhan had been part of the Aims team since its launch in 2014, and will now be replaced by by Gavin Counsell, who has been with the firm for more than five years.
