Credit Suisse has tapped Eric Miller, the former global credit research head at Barclays Capital, to lead the financial services company’s fixed-income research globally.

Miller’s appointment proves to fill a void left when Lara Warner, the former global bond research head, resigned to become CFO at Credit Suisse’s investment banking division late last year, Steven Vames, firm spokesperson, told IMMP today.

In his new role, which will take effect in June, Miller will “be responsible for managing all research asset classes and continuing to build out [its] successful franchise.” He brings with him, more than 20 years of experience, the March 2 announcement stated.

He will be based in New York and report to both Gaël de Boissard and Tony Ehinger, co-heads of global securities, the firm said.

Prior to his role within Barclays Bank PLC’s investment banking division, Miller held research roles at Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch, the press release noted. 

“With two decades of experience working in various research roles, Eric brings a wealth of industry knowledge to this position,” de Boissard stated.

To add, Ehinger said in his comments that Miller will “be instrumental in driving efforts to further expand our fixed-income research offerings.”

At press time, it was unclear if Barclays Capital has named a possible successor for Miller, as calls placed to its New York location were not immediately returned.
