Monday, 5 September 2022: First Sentier Investors, a leading global investment manager, has today announced the appointment of Charline Jezequel and Sascha Beisheim as senior institutional business development directors. Responsible for further developing and implementing the firm’s distribution strategy for institutional clients, Charline covers the UK and Middle East markets and is based in London, while Sascha serves the German market from Frankfurt.
First Sentier views EMEA as a strategic market and an important part of its plans for future growth. The firm provides investment solutions in global, Asia Pacific and emerging market equities, listed infrastructure, direct infrastructure and property securities for institutional and wholesale investors.
Harry Moore, global head of distribution, said: “Our investment product offering is strongly aligned to the characteristics institutional investors are looking for, including inflation protection, long-term views, a focus on capital preservation, and sustainability considerations. The institutional market in EMEA is a key growth area for us and Charline and Sascha’s experience will be invaluable as we continue to grow our business there.”
Charline joins from Amundi, where she was most recently head of insurance for its UK institutional sales group. She also held previous institutional sales roles there, focusing on UK insurance companies, pension funds, banks and private equity firms in the UK, and institutional sovereign wealth funds, family offices and wholesale clients in the Middle East, Central Asia and Africa. Before that, Charline held positions in Dubai at Rasmala and Triago, and at Credit Suisse in London.
Sascha was previously at Swiss Life Asset Managers, where he was responsible for acquisition and relationship management for its institutional client base, which included pension funds, insurance companies, foundations and consultants. Prior to that, he worked in institutional client facing roles at Fidelity international and Quaesta Capital.
