BMO expands European sales team with Italian hire
BMO Global Asset Management has further expanded its European sales team with the appointment of Alfredo Uras as sales executive in Italy.
Uras will provide support on the distribution of BMO Global Asset Management’s investment capabilities across institutional and wholesale channels in Italy. He will report to Giampaolo Giannelli, head of Sales Italy, and will be based in Milan.
Uras joins BMO Global Asset Management from Pioneer Investments, where he worked for more than a decade. He started at Pioneer Investments as senior portfolio analyst where he was covering a sales role for the wholesale and retail distribution channels in both in Italy and Greece. Uras holds a PhD in Banking and Finance.
Over the past year, BMO Global Asset Management has expanded the size and breadth of its European distribution teams with key senior hires in sales and relationship management, and has opened offices in Italy, Spain, Sweden and France (BMO REP), as part of its goal to grow the business across EMEA.
“We are delighted to welcome Alfredo to BMO Global Asset Management, and his appointment will enable us to further expand our presence in Italy. Alfredo is an extremely versatile professional with significant experience and skills, which we know will be beneficial to our clients,” Giannelli said.
