UK / NETHERLANDS - Franklin Templeton Investments has boosted its institutional marketing and client servicing division with four new appointments - Peter Escott, Gayda Humphries, Dennis Kwist and Adam Quaife.
Escott - currently international marketing services manager - has been named as the firm’s new UK institutional sales manager. He will focus on building consultant and market awareness of Templeton’s global equity exempt fund.
To replace Escott, the firm has hired JP Morgan Asset Management’s Gayda Humphries. She joins the firm after a seven year stay at JP Morgan where she was a senior member of the institutional marketing department.
Dennis Kwist joins the firm as marketing manager, northern Europe, from WestLB Asset Management. Kwist spent nearly two years at the firm’s new business development and client service division. At Franklin Templeton, his remit will cover the firm’s efforts to expanding its existing Dutch client base.
The remaining new appointment, Adam Quaife, joins the marketing services team from AXA Investment Managers in Australia. At AXA, Quaife worked as a business development manager.
