Robert Slotpole was named CIO, U.S. equities, at Barclays Global Investors, San Francisco. He succeeds Blake Grossman, who was promoted to co-CEO in mid-2002. Mr. Slotpole left INVESCO Institutional's Boston office in June following a restructuring; he was chairman of the investment policy review committee and trading practices committee, and previously was CIO for structured equity and fundamental growth investment strategies.
Separately, Ronald Kahn was named global head of equity research at BGI, a new position. He was head of active equities in the United States; that position has been eliminated, said Christine Hudacko, BGI spokeswoman.
