UBS appoints Cox to run UK Select fund

UBS Global Asset Management has appointed Matthew Cox to run the UBS UK select fund.

Cox replaces Paul Fairbrother who moves to the pan-European equity team as head of portfolio construction.

Cox has 10 years investment experience and has been at UBS for the last five. He is currently an analyst and portfolio manager on the European small and mid cap team headed by Frank Manduca.
