RELATED TOPICS​

Threadneedle has appointed Kris Haber to develop and lead its business in North America. 

Based in New York, Haber will also take charge of and manage Threadneedle’s hedge fund business globally.

Haber will join in mid-November and will report directly to Crispin Henderson, Threadneedle’s chief executive officer. 

A well-known figure within the North American investment industry, Haber has more than 16 years’ experience, most recently as managing director – global alternative investments at Lazard Asset Management, where he has spent the last 13 years. 

Henderson says: “Kris arrives at a pivotal time for Threadneedle’s growth. His proven abilities and experience will help us to expand our reach in the US while creating local relevance for our clients. Demand for hedge fund expertise to complement core holdings has never been stronger, and Kris’ appointment will reinforce and build upon our current successes to maximise future opportunities for this important part of our business.”

Haber says: “This position provides an exciting challenge for me. Threadneedle has an enviable reputation in Europe, supported by a globally competitive product range and the integrity of the individuals who work there. I was attracted to the opportunity to build on and expand Threadneedle’s global footprint.”
