Capital Group adds to European investment specialist team

RELATED TOPICS​

Investment management company Capital Group has appointed Christophe Braun (pictured) as an investment specialist.

Braun joins Capital Group from CBP Quilvest SA in Luxembourg, where he was a portfolio manager and investment adviser responsible for the implementation of CBP’s investment strategies and asset allocation. Prior to joining CBP, he was an investment representative at TD Direct Investing International, where he had exposure to working with exchanges in North America, Europe and Asia. He holds an MSc in Financial and Industrial Economics from Royal Holloway, University of London.
 
Based in Capital Group’s London office, Braun joins a highly experienced team, which also recently added Julie Dickson as an investment specialist. He will work closely with the portfolio managers, providing clients with expert advice on market developments and Capital Group products.
 
Hamish Forsyth, European President of Capital Group, says: “We believe that it is immensely important to provide high-quality investment service and support to our European clients and partners. Adding Christophe’s broad experience will further enhance our capabilities as our investment specialist team continues to grow from strength-to-strength. We have opened five offices across Europe in the past two years and Christophe’s appointment further underlines our commitment to growth across the region.”
 
Capital’s investment specialists form an integral part of the investment strategy across the Capital Group offering. The Capital System, the firm’s distinctive investment process, divides portfolios into a number of individual portions each managed by an individual portfolio manager. The blend of managers is designed to  lower volatility while striving for consistently positive long-term returns. The investment specialists work very closely with Capital’s portfolio managers to understand their investment decisions and views, and play an important role in enabling its clients to understand the portfolios.
 
Braun added:  “I have closely followed Capital Group’s expansion in Europe and I am very pleased to now be part of this dynamic firm. Engaging with clients in investment conversations and providing insights into our views and positioning is ever more important in a time of market volatility. I believe Capital’s multiple-portfolio-manager system and long-term investing approach uniquely position it to benefit from the opportunities this represents, and I look forward to working with clients across Europe.”
