Columbia Management Gets New CIO

Columbia Management has appointed Colin Moore as chief investment officer, expanding his role as head of equity to include responsibility for all investment activities.

He will also be responsible for spearheading the development and implementation of Columbia’s proprietary alternative investment product offering.

Moore joined the company in 2002 from Putnam Investments, where he was chief investment officer for global and international equities. He will now report to Keith Banks, president of Columbia Management, according to a press release.

“Colin and his team have done a terrific job building a disciplined investment process in equities and have driven Columbia’s performance to a higher level,” said Banks, in the release. “Colin’s new role will enable him to broaden his impact across the entire investment platform.”
