Henderson appoints fixed income head

Henderson Global Investors has appointed Jim Irvine as head of its fixed income business.

Irvine will take over from Mitesh Sheth who has been appointed director of business innovation.

Head of asset-backed securities Colin Fleury will take over the management of Irvine’s structured products and advisory management role as head of the renamed ’secured credit’ business.

In his new role, Sheth will “help the business better anticipate and deliver client solutions”.

Henderson chief executive Andrew Formica says: “Ever since Mitesh joined Henderson in August 2005 he has been resolute in focusing on what clients need in an ever changing world and then developing solutions to meet those needs.

“He has demonstrated this first as deputy head, and then in the last year as head of our fixed income business.”
