Paul Jeffries will join Unigestion as director for institutional clients focusing on the U.K. and Ireland, a spokeswoman confirmed.
The position is new, and Mr. Jeffries will start July 13. Mr. Jeffries will be based in London and will sell the €20 billion ($22.4 billion) money manager's investment management strategies to U.K. and Ireland-based institutional investors. He will report to Reto Germann, executive director and head of institutional clients for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
"This appointment will help us continue to serve institutional clients with complex needs, expand our client base and develop deep relationships with prospects looking for unique investment solutions," Mr. Germann said in a news release.
Mr. Jeffries was executive director for business development at Robeco. Robeco will fill the institutional sales role and is also at an advanced stage in the recruitment process for two senior sales roles — both newly created positions, a spokeswoman said.
