Agilis Investment Management, an independent multi-asset fund manager, has appointed Chris Welsh as Partner, responsible for strategic business development and distribution.

Welsh (pictured), joins Agilis from the Mako Group, a derivatives trading firm, where he was CEO for 10 years before becoming Non-Executive Chairman. At Mako, he was responsible for developing Mako’s core trading business, growing an asset management group and leading several corporate transactions. Welsh has more than 25 years’ of financial-services experience and began his career at Morgan Stanley before joining Credit Suisse.
 
Clark Fenton, Managing Partner & CIO, Agilis, says: “Following a successful first year we are now focused on growing our investor base. Chris’s appointment is an important step towards this goal.
 
“Chris brings with him a wealth of experience having held a number of senior roles across the financial-services industry, including the successful establishment of a fund management business. His in-depth understanding of all aspects of the investment process and innovative derivatives strategies will be invaluable when engaging with our clients.”


Chris Welsh, Partner, Agilis, says: “As we move through this late-stage bull market, investors are looking for strategies which can preserve capital while capturing the remaining upside. It’s an exciting time to join Agilis, as our defensive multi-asset approach helps clients to navigate this environment.”
