'I am particularly proud to entrust the leadership of our institutional business line to David,' said Marchessaux

'David brings deep knowledge of the institutional world, a proven track record in driving investment excellence and experience in working in a multi-cultural environment. I fully trust he will accelerate the development of our institutional franchise across the globe.'

Kiddie added: 'I look forward to building upon the key strengths of its investment teams and to further develop the institutional business by capitalising on its significant footprint and brand.'
