Martin Currie has changed the model of its investment team leadership with the firm's investment head John Pickard exiting as a result.
The new structure will see the heads of the respective strategies placed at the centre of the business, reporting to CEO Willie Watt, who will chair the investment executive committee.
Watt will continue to have accountability for oversight and monitoring of investment processes and philosophy.
He will be supported by investment process head Jeff Casson and head of investment risk, trading and quant Paul Hughes.
The restructuring follows a string of hires the firm made which saw BlackRock's Zehrid Osmani appointed as head of the global long term unconstrained team and Old Mutual Global Investors' CEO Julian Ide as head of distribution and strategy in June.
Pickard joined Martin Currie in 2010 from UBS Global Asset Management, where he was managing director and European head of equities.
His previous positions with UBS included EMEA head of equities, senior global equity portfolio manager and head of Asian equities.
This is the latest firm to restructure its business after AXA Investment Managers made a number of changes last month, which saw potentially 210 employees depart including its chief economist, global head of multi-asset client solutions and head of research Laurence Boone.
Furthermore, Aviva Investors restructured its investment platform in June as part of a raft of changes at the firm aimed at improving cross-team ideas generation, with seven new hires and four employees leaving the group, including two global heads.
