Former van Eyk co-head of managed funds research Jerome Lander is understood to have taken a product role at Credit Suisse Asset Management, echoing his colleague Suzanne Tavill’s move to a major institution.

Lander is on holidays after resigning from van Eyk last month, and was unavailable for comment. Credit Suisse Asset Management said it did not comment on market speculation. The manager has just bolstered its international equity product offering through an exclusive distribution agreement with Julius Baer Investment Management of New York. Meanwhile, the other former co-head of research at van Eyk, Suzanne Tavill, said she was settling in to her newly-created role managing the alternative assets exposure of the AMP Future Directions funds. Those funds already have a moderate alternatives exposure, but Tavill said she was charged with expanding it in areas such as private equity, infrastructure, commodities and agricultural investments. Tavill also refused to comment on Lander’s future.
