His experience in alternative investment and in the building of multi-asset portfolios will be a strong asset for our fund management team.”

I am particularly enthusiastic about the idea of contributing to its development in an intellectually stimulating environment with a strong entrepreneurial culture. It is the ideal working framework to fulfil investors’ expectations in a rapidly changing industry.”
