Axa IM global client group head exits

Axa Investment Managers global head of its client group Laurent Seyer has left the firm, being replaced by global head of multi-asset client solutions and trading & securities financing Christophe Coquema.

In turn Coquema will be replaced by chief operating officer of fixed income Julien Fourtou.

The client group was established in February 2014 to help grow third party assets, developing relationships in the institutional, retail and wholesale markets.

Axa IM chief executive Andrea Rossi says: “In addition to congratulating Christophe and Julien on their new roles, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Laurent Seyer for the significant contribution he has made since joining AXA IM in May 2012. I wish him all the best for the future.”
