Capital Group makes Geneva hire
Capital Group has appointed Marielle Garandet to its business development team in Geneva to boost the manager’s presence alongside the opening of a Zurich office in late 2013.
Capital Group opened its Geneva office in 1962. More recently it moved to boost its local presence in Continental Europe with an office in Milan opened in May 2013, and it expects to open a Madrid office by July this year.
Garandet, who will be business manager in Geneva, has a decade of previous experience, having joined from Allianz GI and worked in London and Paris supporting clients in the UK, France and Luxembourg.
Grant Leon (pictured), head of Sales, Private Wealth Distribution at Capital Group, said: “Capital Group first established its presence in Europe with the opening of the Geneva office in 1962 and I’m pleased to say that we continue to grow and expand more than fifty years on. The hire of Marielle and the opening of the new office in Zurich demonstrates our ongoing commitment to our clients in Europe.”
