EFAMA elects new President

RELATED TOPICS​

EFAMA, the European Fund and Asset Management Association, has elected William Nott as President for a two-year term (until June 2019).

The election took place at the occasion of EFAMA’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) hosted by The Investment Association in London on Friday, 23 June.
 
The AGM also elected Nicolas Calcoen, Chief Financial Officer of Amundi, as EFAMA’s Vice-President for the same two-year term.
 
Nott, who has just completed a two year term as EFAMA’s Vice-President, succeeds Alexander Schindler, EFAMA President since 2015. William Nott has been CEO of M&G Securities, the retail funds business of M&G, since 2006 and is also Chief Strategy Officer of M&G Group. He has served on the EFAMA Board of Directors and the board of the Investment Association for a combined total of sixteen years.
 
Calcoen has been Chief Financial Officer and Head of Finance & Strategy at Amundi Group since October 2012. Nicolas Calcoen has also been an economist with the Department of Public Finances at the International Monetary Fund in Washington, DC, and has held Deputy Director positions in the cabinet of the Minister of the Economy, Finances and Industry and the cabinet of the Minister of Budget, Public Accounts and Civil Administration in France. He has been a member of the EFAMA Board of Directors since 2012.
 
In his inaugural address as President of EFAMA, Nott said: “It is a great honour and responsibility to be entrusted with the presidency of such a highly successful and well respected association. I look forward to continuing the excellent work of our outgoing President, Alexander Schindler, who has been unrelenting in ensuring the views and concerns of EFAMA and its members have been clearly heard by policymakers and regulators. This engagement on behalf of our end investors – whose interests are our number one priority – is more important than ever at this crucial time for Europe and the European asset management industry.”
 
Peter De Proft (pictured), Director General of EFAMA, says: “We are delighted to welcome William Nott and Nicolas Calcoen as our new President and Vice-President. EFAMA is resolute to actively engage in the global and European regulatory debates that govern and drive our business model in a new European world. Our new Presidency will surely help us achieve this. With William and Nicolas, a talented team in place in the EFAMA secretariat, and the indispensable support of our members, we will continue to work alongside policymakers and regulators to build the best possible regulatory environment for our industry.”
 
Members at the EFAMA Annual General Meeting also elected a new Board of Directors for a two-year term*.
 
EFAMA and its newly appointed Presidency are committed to an agenda that protects the investor and communicates on the crucial role asset managers can play in the financing of the economy. As the representative association for the European asset management industry, we will continue to focus on the following objectives:
