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.

Prior to joining BlueBay, Zobel worked at Deutsche Asset Management.

"David’s appointment marks a turning point in the development of Talisman as a business and reflects our belief in the strength of the investment platform," Mark Pears, whose family founded Talisman, said. "We are in an exceptional position of being able to make long term and patient capital investments and David’s arrival provides the leadership and vision to position us to do this."
