MFS Investment Management has appointed Alison O’Neill as chief investment officer, effective January 1 2025. She will also become a member of the firm’s management committee.

O’Neill will oversee the firm’s 300-strong investment team, which includes the equity, fixed income, quantitative solutions, and global trading teams.

She will succeed Edward M. “Ted” Maloney, the firm’s current CIO, who, as announced in December, will become the firm’s new chief executive officer, also effective January 1 2025.

Commenting on O’Neill’s appointment, Maloney says: “During her nearly 20 years with the firm, she has been involved in hiring and mentoring many members of the investment team and has collaborated with leadership across the department to help enhance our investment platform.”

O’Neill joined MFS in 2005 as an equity research analyst, was named director of research for North America in 2016, added a diversified portfolio management role in 2018, and was named co-CIO of equity in 2020. She has worked in the industry since 2000.
