Lombard Odier Investment Managers has appointed Dominick Peasley as head of third party distribution for the UK and Nordics.

Reporting to LOIM head of European sales Marius Wuergler, Peasley will be based in London.

Prior to this, Peasley was head of European third party distribution at Ashmore Group and head of UK third party distribution at Goldman Sachs.

LOIM has also hired David Morley as head of institutional sales for the UK and Nordics, who will also be based in London and report to Wuergler.

Wuergler says: “Over the last two years we’ve built sales coverage in continental Europe, with new teams in italy, France and Benelux, so the UK market is a natural extension of this growth.

“On the institutional side we’ve seen notable successes with our smart beta solutions while our third-party business to private banks and distributors is expanding through a range of funds with strong track records.”
