Fleming is to join Threadneedle after 12 years at JP Morgan Asset Management, where he is currently the group’s UK head.
He will join the company in November to lead Threadneedle’s global distribution function, which includes the wholesale and institutional business as well as marketing and product development. Fleming reports to Threadneedle chief executive officer Crispin Henderson.
Henderson says: “Campbell joins at an exciting time for Threadneedle. 2009 has been a very good year for us with key successes to underpin business growth – including sustained long term investment out-performance, strong net inflows, new strategic partnerships and the launch of the new Threadneedle Luxembourg based Sicav funds offering. We are keen to emulate similar success in 2010 and believe Campbell will play a key role at helping us further grow our assets and extend our global reach across both retail and institutional spaces.”
JP Morgan Asset Management has appointed Roger Thompson as head of the UK business to replace Fleming.
Thompson has been an employee of the company since 1993, initially working in JP Morgan’s investment bank in Europe and Asia.
He joined JP Morgan Asset Management in 1999 and has been chief financial officer of its international business and a member of the international management committee since 2003.
Head of Europe for JP Morgan Asset Management Jamie Broderick says: “Roger has worked on many of the strategic developments in the UK business, and as such brings a significant understanding of our UK business, its products and clients to his new role.”
