UK - AXA Investment Managers (AXA IM) has promoted Kathleen Currie to director, structured solutions, on its liability driven solutions (LDS) team on the back of Vincent de Martel's departure to BGI.
De Martel left AXA IM to join BGI’s liability driven investments (LDI) team, which is headed up by CIO of LDI, Tarik ben Saud.
Based in the London office, Currie will assume responsibility for AXA IM’s business development for LDS, reporting to Nathalie Boullefort-Fulconis, global head of institutional business.
“Liability driven solutions have become a major issue among defined benefit schemes and their sponsors, especially in recent years when the problems of asset-liability mismatches have become apparent,” Boullefort-Fulconis said.
“We are committed to providing LDS for our clients. Kathleen has very valuable skills and extensive experience and her promotion further strengthens AXA IM’s capability in this area.”
Before joining AXA IM in 2004, Currie worked for TD Securities where she was most recently vice president and director of the customised solutions divisions. Prior to that, she spent three years at RBC Dominion Securities in Toronto, where she was responsible for the marketing of derivative products.
