GAM has appointed David Dowsett as global head of investment, effective 4 April. Dowsett joins from BlueBay Asset Management, where he held multiple positions in his 18-year tenure, including co-CIO, partner, and management committee member. Dowsett was also a lead portfolio manager for a $20 billion strategy and oversaw BlueBay’s management of $60 billion in AUM.  

Peter Sanderson, GAM CEO: “I am delighted that David is joining GAM, he brings with him a wealth of experience and he will provide strong leadership for our investment teams as we deliver for our clients and grow the firm.” 

Dowsett on his new position: “I am very excited to be joining GAM at this point in its strategic transformation. The management team has built a robust platform for growth and I aim to help the firm capitalise on recent strong investment performance. GAM will always be an investment firm with no ‘house view’, but I believe my track record of investment expertise and experience of building commercially viable investment products can contribute to the success of the firm in meeting its strategic goals.”
