SWITZERLAND - Multi-manager Frank Russell has opened an office in Geneva, as part of its European growth strategy.
Anthony Acampora, who recently joined Russell, has been appointed managing director of Frank Russell Investments (Suisse) and will focus on servicing existing institutional accounts as well as developing business.
He joined Russell from Tendler Beretz International, the European subsidiary of the US private merchant bank, where he was managing director and established TBI’s European operations.
He brings to Russell more than 25 years’ experience in the investment and merchant banking fields, and has been based in Europe since 1990.
Russell substantially expanded its European operations during 2001, including deals with BMW Bank in Germany, Ahorro Corporación in Spain, Bank Hapoalim in Israel and Scottish Widows in the UK.
Commenting on the move, Frédéric Jolly, managing director, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Frank Russell Company, said: “This Geneva base will allow us to better focus on growing our business, especially in institutional and private banking, in this region.”
