Chris Cheetham is to join HSBC Asset Management as its global chief investment officer, replacing Bryce McDonnell who retired in October.
Cheetham was previously at Axa Investment Managers, where he has held the global CIO position since January 2000.
At Axa, co-head of securities management Robert Kyprianou will take on Cheetham's role while the group seeks a permanent replacement. There is no timescale on when this will be as yet nor whether it will be an internal or external appointment. At HSBC, Cheetham will be responsible for global investment strategy and process and will head up the group's international investment team of 250. He will report to Alain Dromer, HSBC's global chief executive officer.
Cheetham joined the Axa Group in 1996 as managing director of Axa Equity and Law Investment Managers, which was subsequently merged with Sun Life Asset Management.
Cheetham was responsible for the integration and became CEO of the combined business Axa Sun Life Asset Management.
