Norman will be responsible for developing the business and will lead retail and institutional client relationships, sales, product development and marketing efforts.
He will report to JC Perrig, head of EMEA for Credit Suisse’s Asset Management business.
Norman joins from Morley Fund Management, where he was director of marketing and products. He has also worked at both Threadneedle, ISIS and Insight during his 20 years in fund management.
Perrig says: “David’s appointment and the creation of this new role is evidence of our commitment to the UK and Ireland, where we continue to build on our strong momentum in the business. Despite turbulent markets, we have made significant progress in the UK recently with all our UK equity income products being top quartile, our multi-manager team launching two popular new multi-asset funds over 12 months and new UK Fixed Income and UK Property teams now firmly established.”
