Changes to AMP Henderson Investment Team
New Zealand’s largest fund manager, AMP Henderson Global Investors, has appointed a new chief investment officer (CIO), Paul Dyer.
In announcing the appointment, AMP Henderson managing director Catherine Savage said Mr Dyer would oversee the domestic fixed interest and equities operations, while retaining responsibility for strategic and tactical asset allocation.
“Paul will focus on the integrity of the investment process and delivering the highest quality investment outcomes,” she said.
The CIO position was previously held by Chris Wozniak, who will take up a senior role within Henderson Global Investors in the United Kingdom. Mr Wozniak will become director of global asset allocation within the fixed interest team, retaining a strong relationship with the New Zealand operation.
Tore Hayward has also been appointed, to a new position of fixed interest strategist. Tore was formerly foreign reserves manager with the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. He brings with him considerable experience in funds management and investment banking.
Mr Hayward’s appointment will strengthen what is already a well-respected fixed interest team, comprising Grant Hassell, Peter Scobie and Vicky Hyde-Smith. The team’s primary focus will continue to be duration management, while the additional resource expands its investment and credit research capabilities.
