Family office Talisman Global Asset Management, which began offering its services to other family offices, endowments and foundations earlier this year, has hired a CEO.

David Zobel will lead the London-based firm, charged with sourcing strategic business and investment transactions alongside chief investment officer Julian Sinclair, as well as running the business. He joins from BlueBay Asset Management, where he was head of hedge fund strategies.
