HSBC hires former Schroders credit head Stuttard

Jamie Stuttard has joined HSBC Global Research as head of European credit strategies.

Stuttard has taken the job after returning to London from the US where he spent almost three years at Fidelity Investments as head of international bond portfolio management. He left the role in April.

The credit specialist used to work at Schroders as head of European and UK fixed income between October 2003 and June 2011.

HSBC Global Research confirmed Stuttard’s appointment, but would offer no further information.

Stuttard will not run money in his new role, but instead create research for the investment banking arm of the finance giant.
