Paul Nicholson will join Brisbane-based institutional investment manager QIC in London from November as director-global fixed income and absolute return.
The position is a new one at QIC, said a spokeswoman for the firm in Australia. Mr. Nicholson comes to QIC from Vontobel Asset management in Zurich, where he served as a portfolio manager and head of fixed-income absolute return.
In a news release Tuesday, Vontobel announced that Ludovic Colin, who joined the firm last year as a senior portfolio manager, will take on the role of head of the global flexible investment team with the firm’s fixed-income boutique.
The QIC spokeswoman said Mr. Nicholson will support Susan Buckley, managing director, global liquid strategies, in co-managing and growing QIC’s absolute return funds, with a focus on the U.K. and broader European region.
