“Christian is joining Carmignac at an exciting time in our UK development. We’ve recently celebrated the fifth anniversary of our UK OEIC range and implemented a new business development strategy focused primarily on wholesale and institutional investors. I am confident Christian’s wealth of experience across the UK distribution market will prove most valuable as we serve our growing client base. We’re delighted to have him on board.”
