Unigestion moves into new London office for expanded UK team

RELATED TOPICS​

Boutique asset manager Unigestion has moved its London-based staff into new London headquarters in Stratford Place, W1.

Since the beginning of 2016, Unigestion’s London team has increased from 25 to 40 people as the UK has become Unigestion’s largest non-domestic market.
 
All four investment lines (equities, multi-asset, alternatives and private equity) are fully represented in London with investment, sales and back office teams to serve UK clients. Unigestion’s range of UK clients includes Railpen, the Merseyside Pension Fund and the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. 
 
Fiona Frick (pictured), chief executive officer of Unigestion, says: “The expansion of our London team is a reflection of our commitment to the UK market, where we have had a presence for 16 years. Our approach to providing risk-managed solutions for clients across our investment suite, and working closely alongside them to co-create the specific solutions they need, has proven successful in the UK, as it has elsewhere in the world. We look forward to being able to increase our UK presence further and keep building strong and collaborative relationships across our UK client base.   
 
“We set ourselves this target of doubling our headcount in London to 40 people this year – regardless of the outcome of the EU Referendum. London will remain a key financial hub – for Unigestion and for the international asset management industry. The UK is the second largest pensions market in the world after the US by assets, and far ahead of any other single European market in size. It has a huge pool of talent and will continue to attract excellent investment professionals and be a thriving market for institutional investors and asset managers to work together to find innovative solutions for long term investment needs.”
