Paul Osborne, Director, UK Institutional Sales, said:

“Unigestion has a dynamic product offering across all asset classes that I believe will only continue to gain traction in the UK market. The firm’s risk managed approach to investing resonates well with UK pension schemes’ investment objectives, and I am excited to be part of the business’ next stage of growth.”

Claire Harding, Co-Head of Consultant Relations, said:

“Unigestion has a strong and respected brand across the consultancy community and is ideally positioned to provide innovative and tailor made client solutions. This is an exciting time for Unigestion and I am delighted to have the opportunity to contribute to achieving the company’s ambitious strategy.”
