Seven Investment Management has hired Credit Suisse ex-head of investment management in London Martyn Surguy as chief investment officer.
Previously, Surguy served as CIO of the private wealth management division for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Morgan Stanley. He also spent 16 years at Morgan Grenfell and Deutsche Bank, latterly as CIO for its international division and head of portfolio management in the UK.
7IM chief executive officer Tom Sheridan says: “[Surguy’s]
multi-asset background is a perfect fit for 7IM, whilst his experience of also managing equity portfolio management teams will bring additional expertise.”
Surguy says: “Having spent most of my working life in the wealth management division of large integrated banks, the appeal of working for a smaller dedicated investment manager with a broad investment offering was huge.
“I am excited to join a company where discretionary wealth management is at its core. I believe that the quality of the investment team is exceptional which, allied to a deep-rooted commitment to do things simply and well, gives me great confidence for what we can achieve in the future.”
