Amundi is strengthening its distribution business with the appointment of Christian Pellis as global head of external distribution.
Pellis (pictured) has wide experience in the distribution segment across Europe. Before joining Amundi at the beginning of the year he worked as head of distribution at LGT Capital Management where he was also member of the executive board (2010–2012).
Peillis’ early career was spent at Fleming Fund Management in Luxembourg (1993–1998) where he held management positions in client services and marketing.
He spent much of his career at Threadneedle Investments, first in Frankfurt, as regional sales director for Europe (1998–2001), then at Threadneedle’s UK operation in London, where he held a similar position with responsibility for developing new markets in Europe and Latin America (2002–2004).
Subsequently, he was head of European distribution in London with a particular focus on the institutional business in Europe and Latin America (2004–2010).
