Opalesque Industry Update - iM Global Partner announces the appointment of Philippe Uzan as Deputy CEO and CIO Asset Management. He will be in charge of managing the iM Global Partner fund platform and in particular the OYSTER fund range.

Following the announcement of the acquisition of SYZ Asset Management (Luxembourg)[1] and the integration of the OYSTER fund range into its international distribution platform at the beginning of February, iM Global Partner announces the recruitment of renowned expert Philippe Uzan to lead the fund management offering of iM Global Partner's distribution platforms.

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.
