Schroders has appointed Simon Doyle as the newly-created role of chief investment officer for Australia.

He would report to Australian chief executive, Sam Hallinan, and UK-based group chief investment officer and co-head of investments, Johanna Kyrklund.

In the role, Doyle would be responsible for creating and delivering investment solutions for existing and prospective clients in the Australian market.

He would work closely with Natalie Morcos who was promoted to head of product and solutions, Australia.

Hallinan said: “In the new structure, I will work closely with Simon and Natalie to identify solutions that meet clients’ evolving needs over the coming years. This will also include leveraging Simon’s extensive multi-asset and solution-oriented experience to drive our response to the changing regulatory and market landscape.

“Natalie has played an integral role in our business since joining Schroders in 2020, and in this new role she will bring her extensive industry experience - gained over a 20-year career working with Mercer Investments, Russell Investments, MLC and others - to bear.”

There had also been appointments in the investment team with Kellie Wood promoted to deputy head of fixed income, Australia and Sebastian Mullins as deputy head of multi-asset, Australia.
