Based in Munich, Steve Haswell joins the company from US money management firm MFS Investment Management, where he held a variety of positions including head of global sales and head of continental Europe.
The company said Haswell has experience in the asset management industry across sales and distribution on a global level across every asset class.
Head of distribution & marketing, Scott Coleman, said: “[Haswell’s] focus will be across all of EMEA, where we have significant momentum, and in markets we can further develop as we have a great opportunity to capitalise on our long-term investment performance.”
Haswell added: “I’m looking forward to being back in the region, building on the success of our current client base and securing new clients at a very exciting time for institutional investors in Europe.”
