Credit Suisse Economist To Finisterre

Jul 11 2011 | 10:49am ET

Finisterre Capital has hired a Credit Suisse Group economist to focus on emerging markets.

The London-based firm, which in April agreed to sell a majority stake in itself to insurer Principal Financial Group, hired Ivailo Vesselinov, it said. Vesselinov had been a senior economist covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Credit Suisse, and formerly worked at the Bulgarian National Bank.

"He brings with him extensive professional experience as an economic analyst and his appointment will enable us to benefit from a number of trends currently underway in EM and allow us to take advantage of potential growth opportunities," Vesselinov's new boss, Christopher Watson, head of research, said.
