Pension consultants strengthen EMEA team with hire from Allianz GI
Pension consultants bfinance have hired Michel Haski from Allianz Global Investors Europe, to be head of institutional coverage in Europe and the Middle East and Africa.
Haski will be based in London.
At AGI Europe Haski held the roles of chief executive officer, and co-head of sales, and director general of Allianz Global Investors France.
He stepped down from being co-head of European sales at the German-headquartered group in March.
This function, which also incorporated business development, has since been taken over wholly by the co-head, James Dilworth.
Maski also held senior positions at Credit Commercial de France – now HSBC France – Framlington Asset Management and Foster & Braithwaite, as well as Groupe Bernard Krief Consultants and Dorset Development.
David Vafai, CEO of bfinance, said: “His extensive experience of the institutional investment marketplace will be invaluable as we continue to build our presence in Europe and the Middle East.”
Haski said he had known bfinance for 10 years already, and was “struck by their highly innovative and client centric approach”.
