AXA IM appoints Venizelos to Research Team
AXA Investment Management (AXA IM) has announced the appointment of Gregory Venizelos as senior credit strategist to its Research and Investment Strategy team.
Based in London, he will cover credit investment grade and high yield as well as sub sovereign assets. He will be reporting to Eric Chaney, head of research at AXA IM and chief economist at AXA Group.
Eric Chaney, commented: “With inflation low and interest rate rises looking ever more likely, the ongoing tug of war between rising credit yields and low default rates requires vigilant monitoring. Gregory’s depth of expertise will strengthen the team’s coverage of credit markets, providing fund managers with support and rounded insights for making informed investment decisions on behalf of clients.”
Venizelos joins AXA from the BNP Paribas Fixed Income Division, where he worked as senior credit strategist. Prior to that, he has worked among others at RBS and Paribas AM.
