GAM Investments appoints global head of trading

GAM Investments has appointed Juan Landazabal as global head of trading.

This newly created role will strengthen GAM’s existing trading infrastructure, strategy and processes as well as counterparty relationships across equities, fixed income and FX. He joined on 10 September 2018 and is based in London, reporting to Matthew Beesley, head of investments.

Landazabal joins GAM from DWS Group (formerly Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management) where he was global head of fixed income and FX trading. Prior to that, he spent almost ten years at Fidelity Investments, first as a senior credit trader and then as head of fixed income trading. He has held various trading and financial analyst roles across Madrid, New York and London throughout his career, which began in 1994.

Matthew Beesley, head of investments, said: “The appointment of Landazabal is an important step in our multi-year change programme. His extensive expertise and knowledge of capital markets will be of considerable value as we invest to build a more efficient, robust and scalable operating platform that is aligned with our growth ambitions.”
