IRELAND - Gráinne Alexander has been appointed managing director of F&C Ireland, rejoining the firm after her departure for Mercer Investment Consulting in 2002.
Alexander, previously a senior investment consultant and European partner at Mercer IC, will replace Ruth O’Briain who is set to retire from the industry in April after six years as MD.
At Mercer, Alexander advised institutional clients about the asset liability modelling process.
Alexander is a qualified actuary and began her career with New Ireland Investment Managers.
In 1998, she joined Friends First Asset Management (FFAM) as head of international equities and, following the integration of FFAM into F&C in 2001, she was appointed head of business development in Ireland.
