Credit Suisse fund manager Leigh Harrison is to give up his UK growth responsibilities to focus on maintaining performance on the Extra Income portfolio.
As of January, Crispin Finn, manager of the group's smaller companies fund, will take over day-to-day responsibility for the £48.5m UK Growth portfolio, while Richard Colwell will become lead manager of the £256m Growth & Income and £97.7m Managed Assets funds.
Colwell joined Credit Suisse in June this year from Schroders, where he was a portfolio manager for five years.
Meanwhile, Adam Holmes is to take over the Credit Suisse European fund, managed by Alan Zlatar since Raj Shant left to join Newton in March this year.
Holmes joined Credit Suisse in January 2002 as part of the group's acquisition of SLC Asset Management, where he ran a number of European equity portfolios.
When Shant vacated the European fund in March, the group asked Alan Zlatar, a Zurich-based member of its European team, to run the portfolio on an interim basis to give Holmes time to acclimatise at Credit Suisse.
Zlatar has now returned to Zurich as Credit Suisse feels it is an appropriate time to have a full-time named manager on the fund based in London, according to the group's managing director Ian Chimes.
