Based in Paris, Mr. Uzan will be in charge of the management of the Luxembourg SICAV fund range - representing €2 billion in assets under management - and will be responsible for the selection and monitoring of the strategies chosen by iM Global Partner to sub-delegate the financial management of its funds.

His in-depth knowledge of asset management will be key to the development of our distribution platform. His next projects will focus on the evolution of the OYSTER range, and in particular, the development of new products for customers.
