RELATED TOPICS​

As part of its ongoing European expansion effort, Manulife Asset Management (MAM) has named Christos Tsaravas as Managing Director and Head of Distribution for Switzerland.

Tsaravas will be responsible for leading business development in the Swiss market, including introducing the full range of MAM’s public and private markets capabilities to clients across the institutional and wholesale spaces in this key European country.
 
Manulife AM (Switzerland) LLC recently obtained its securities registration from FINMA, Switzerland’s independent financial-markets regulator, enabling operations as a regulated distributor of collective investment funds there.
 
Tsaravas, whose appointment is effective immediately, will report to Marco Zanuso, Head of Distribution, EMEA, and will be based in the newly opened Zurich office.
 
“We are delighted that Christos has joined the team to help build the business as well as to manage and grow the local team. Christos has an excellent reputation and relationships in the Swiss market,” says Zanuso. “His experience and local knowledge will help us to better meet the needs of our clients and further drive our expansion in Europe.”
 
Tsaravas, who has nearly two decades of experience in the Swiss market, was previously with Deutsche Asset Management where he served as Director, Head of Institutional Clients, Switzerland. Prior to that, he was with Man Group plc as Managing Director, Head of Institutional Clients, Switzerland. He has extensive experience in public markets, hedge funds and real assets.
 
Tsaravas says he expects MAM’s actively managed traditional asset classes will be attractive in the region.
 
He also sees growing demand for liquid alternatives as well as private market capabilities including real estate, infrastructure, timber and farmland.
 
“Manulife Asset Management has strong capabilities across the investment spectrum and we see tremendous opportunities to meet clients’ needs in the Swiss market,” he says.
