Putnam Investments announced last Tuesday that it had hired the president and chief executive officer of Delaware Investments and its parent, Lincoln National Investments Co., to be its co-head of investments.
Charles E. "Ed" Haldeman, Jr. was named a senior managing director as well as co-head of investments. Haldeman, who has 28 years of investment experience, is to join Putnam Nov. 1. He will share his new role with Steve Oristaglio, who is deputy head of investments. Tim Ferguson, who was head of investments for four years, will stay with Putnam and focus on strategic initiatives and alternative investments.
