Monday, April 16, 2018
Opalesque Industry Update - Fidante Partners, an international investment management business, announced the appointment of Hugh Ferrand to the Institutional Business Development team in its London office.

Hugh has over 20 years' experience in institutional sales, principally as head of the Invesco Perpetual Institutional Division, where he successfully grew the institutional business whilst developing strong relationships with clients across pension schemes, charities, endowment funds and insurance firms. Prior to joining Invesco in 1999, Hugh was an investment manager, initially at Adam Bank and then at Blairlogie. Hugh's career began at Cazenove in 1981 where he worked for 11 years researching and selling Asian equities. Hugh is currently a Governor at Birkbeck College.

Working closely with Max Bickford in the institutional sales team, Hugh will be responsible for developing Fidante Partners' institutional business development activities and engagement with pension funds and insurance companies across the UK.

Hugh is the latest senior leader appointed by Fidante Partners as it grows its business operations. Gihan Ismail has joined in the newly created role of Head of Strategic Partnerships to provide strategic support to Fidante Partners' managers while John Armstrong-Denby has joined Fidante Capital, the international capital markets business of Fidante Partners, as Head of Corporate Finance to lead the origination and execution of transactions. Joachim Klement recently joined to lead the Investment Research efforts at both Fidante Partners and Fidante Capital.

Hugh reports directly to Cathy Hales, Global Head of Fidante Partners.

Cathy Hales, Global Head of Fidante Partners, said: "We are constantly looking at ways of delivering better outcomes for our clients and achieving their investment objectives. Hugh has an impressive track record in institutional sales and built a reputation for creating client confidence and a positive team environment. We've been impressed with the recent interest among institutional clients for the highly active and alternative strategies offered by our investment partners and Hugh's appointment will continue to build on this recent momentum. His extensive experience will prove highly beneficial to Fidante over the years to come. It is a really exciting time for the business, with Hugh complementing several other recent high quality senior hires across the business."

Hugh Ferrand added: "Fidante Partners is a fast growing and client focused organisation. I am impressed with the firm's high quality new leadership team and recent achievements. The global Fidante platform offers strategies that are an exciting prospect for institutional investors. I look forward to contributing towards the continued growth of the Fidante business through developing new client opportunities and managing existing ones."
