Merrill Lynch Investment Managers, which has seen a number of fund managers leave in recent weeks, has added to its global fixed income team with the appointment of Jeremy Cunningham and Jason Smith from JP Morgan Fleming (JPMF).
Cunningham joins as an account manager on the global fixed income team, reporting to Hasan Abdat, the team's business manager.
Prior to working as a fund manager at JPMF, which he joined in 1996 while it was still Flemings, Cunningham was at Invesco Asset Management.
Smith has joined MLIM's European fixed income team as an account manager, reporting to Mark Rimmer, the team's business manager.
The appointments come less than two weeks after the resignation of Peter Geike-Cobb, former manager of the £91.1m Merrill Lynch Global Bond fund.
On the day Geike-Cobb announced his retirement, institutional bond fund manager Andrew Fisch signaled his intention to leave the group to pursue other interests.
Other managers to leave in recent weeks include UK smaller companies fund manager Habib Annous, as well as Carol Galley, Jeffrey Peek, Stephen Zimmermann, David Urch, Chris Alexander and James de Uphaugh.
