EUROPE - Henderson Global Investors announced it had made two key European appointments as part of its strategy to grow its focus across the continent.
Ariane Dehn will manage the firm's Zurich office and target the German speaking market in Switzerland, while Erik van de Weele has joined the Amsterdam-based Benelux and Scandinavian team to build relationships with current and future distribution partners in the region.
Van de Weele had worked previously with ABN AMRO Asset Management as a senior account manager of third party fund sales.
