Paras Anand was named head of pan-European equities and Richard Lewis was named head of global equities at Fidelity Worldwide Investment, spokeswoman Anne Read confirmed.
Both positions are new, and both will report to Dominic Rossi, chief investment officer of equities.
Mr. Anand’s appointment starts in 2012. He currently is head of European equities at F&C Investments. Paula Garrido, F&C spokeswoman, said it “is very early” and that it hasn’t been determined whether the position will be replaced.
Mr. Lewis will join Fidelity in November. He was co-head of New Star Asset Management’s institutional business before the firm was acquired by Henderson Global Investors in 2009.
Ms. Read could not provide additional information by press time.
