PineBridge Investments has appointed Oliver Leach as head of intermediary business, UK, from Hermes Investment Management.
Leach will be responsible for business development with UK intermediaries and building relationships with clients. He will be based in London and will report to Klaus Schuster, head of Europe at PineBridge.
