HSBC GAM names new investment chief

The former chief executive of HSBC Global Asset Management's Asia Pacific operations has been named the firm's new global chief investment officer.

HSBC GAM has named Joanna Munro as its new global chief investment officer, replacing Chris Cheetham who will retire at the end of the month.

Munro, who brings more than 30 years' industry experience, is currently global head of stewardship and fiduciary governance as well as chair of HSBC GAM.

Munro initially joined HSBC GAM in 2005 and was appointed to lead the Asia Pacific business in 2011 - a role she held until 2014.

Prior to that, Munro held the role of global head of product and was previously global chief investment officer of HSBC Investments.

She is also a former head of UK institutional and global consultant relations for AXA Investment Managers.

Munro will continue to report directly to HSBC GAM global chief executive Nicolas Moreau.

The appointment follows that of Tina Radovic to the role of global head of credit research last month.

Radovic is responsible for leading HSBC GAM's global credit research platform and was previously head of credit research in Paris.
