Paris-based asset manager La Financière de l’Echiquier (LFDE) has appointed Alessandro Arrighi as country manager Italy.
He will be responsible for strengthening the establishment of the brand and bolstering the firm’s inflows in Italy, where LFDE has presence since over 12 years. The French manager distributes mainly equity and diversified funds in the country but is to propose fixed income strategies following its partnership with Primonial, that has seen the integration of Stamina AM and AltaRocca AM within LFDE.
Arrighi was previously head of Business Development for Italy and the Ticino area at Ethenea. Formerly, he held roles with Carmignac including sales director and deputy country head Italy. He started his financial career in 2000 as financial advisor within the Banca Nazionale del Lavoro, owned by BNP Paribas.
LFDE’s chairman Didier Le Menestrel said bounds tied with Italy, which forms the company’s second market after France, are intertwined in the manager’s history.
