Fidelity International has hired Chris Forgan as co-portfolio manager of its multi-asset income range, reuniting him with former colleague Bill McQuaker.
Forgan joins from Henderson Global Investors where he managed multi-asset funds over a 13-year period. Prior to this, he was a senior performance analyst at First State Investments.
The move will see him working again with his former Henderson colleague Bill McQuaker, who joined Fidelity as multi-asset manager in October 2016.
Joining in September, Forgan will work as a co-portfolio manager with the existing multi-asset income team, led by portfolio manager Eugene Philalithis, which has £6.4bn in assets under management.
Forgan will report to James Bateman, CIO, multi-asset at Fidelity International.
Bateman said: "Chris's appointment reflects the continued expansion of Fidelity's £40bn multi-asset business in line with growing client demand for multi-asset solutions.
"Fidelity's multi-asset income franchise, led by portfolio manager Eugene Philalithis and supported by the broader team of 34 investment professionals, has delivered consistently strong performance and substantial asset growth.
"The addition of another highly experienced manager enables the team to continue to meet client expectations and support further asset growth globally."
