FRANCE - Mellon Global Investments Limited, the international distribution subsidiary of Mellon Financial Corporation, has appointed Anne-Laure Frischlander sales executive for France.
Frischlander joined Mellon’s international sales team in January from HSBC Private Bank (France), reporting to Sasha Evers, vice president of Mellon Global Investments.
Her responsibilities include promotion of Mellon’s offshore pooled fund range to multi-manager platforms and promoting the firm’s alternative strategy capabilities.
While at HSBC, Frischlander was a client relationship manager in the institutional and corporate investor department.
Jon Little, chief executive officer of Mellon, said: “France is the largest retail fund market in Europe and very important strategically to Mellon. It is increasingly opening up to external managers and we are very excited about developing our local business.”
By leveraging current global agreements, Mellon said Frischlander would also aim to enhance relationships with global banks present in France as well as developing the distribution of Mellon funds through the private banking areas of local financial services organisations.
