Henaghan will be responsible for the diversified funds range, strategy and economic insights, as well as the client portfolio management business, while Beardow will take care of the specialist investment teams, fixed income, fundamental equities and multi-strategy global investment management teams. 

They report to Stephen Dunne, chief executive, starting 1 January 2014.
