ECU appoints Andrew Broadhurst as head of institutional currency management services

RELATED TOPICS​

The ECU Group has appointed Andrew Broadhurst as head of institutional currency management services.

 
Broadhurst was most recently head of global business development and a partner of Overlay Asset Management Partners, which provided its services exclusively to the Overlay Asset Management subsidiary of BNP Paribas Investment Partners. 
 
Prior to this, he spent 16 years at JP Morgan Investment Management managing overlay strategies for their multi-currency portfolio.
 
Broadhurst will work closely with Michael Petley, ECU’s chief investment officer, on currency products and services for institutions, in particular passive and active currency overlay strategies. He will represent ECU in its recently announced joint venture with SLJ Macro Partners under which ECU and SLJ will develop global currency benchmarking products and execute customised currency overlay strategies for institutional clients.
 
Antony John, chief executive of ECU, says: “Andrew’s arrival will enable us to broaden our existing currency asset and liability management offering and create a panoply of services oriented towards family offices, local authorities, institutions and corporates.  Many such institutions have substantial unhedged assets and liabilities in foreign currencies, giving rise to undesirable risk exposures which their stakeholders are increasingly requiring them to manage.  ECU and SLJ aim to create a leading edge capability in this burgeoning and exciting arena.”
