Andrew Jackson was named head of Vontobel's fixed-income boutique, effective Jan. 22.
Jackson will replace Simon Lue-Fong, who is retiring after 30 years in the investment management industry.
Jackson will be based in Zurich, a spokesperson confirmed. He will oversee the 18 billion Swiss francs ($21.1 billion) fixed-income boutique, which has investment staff based in Zurich, New York, Miami and Hong Kong. The unit covers corporate, emerging markets, global and Swiss bonds, and is one of Vontobel's two fixed-income specialists along with TwentyFour Asset Management.
"With more than two decades of fixed-income investing experience, he brings a wealth of expertise across the full spectrum of fixed-income subasset classes and will help drive the boutique forward in the new investment landscape," said Christel Rendu de Lint, co-CEO and head of investments, in a news release. "Our fixed-income boutique represents a key pillar of Vontobel's investments capabilities and will continue to develop further for the benefit of our clients. I want to thank Simon for his commitment to Vontobel and wish him all the best in his retirement."
Jackson was head of fixed income at Credit Suisse Asset Management. Parent company Credit Suisse was acquired by UBS last year. A spokesperson declined to comment.
