RWC Partners hires head of investment strategy

Business-Handshake-General-Hire-Appointment-700x450.jpgRWC Partners has hired Arthur Grigoryants as head of investment strategy as the firm focuses on continuing to grow the business.

In the newly-created role, Grigoryants will oversee investment, strategic and management issues.

Grigoryants joins from Stonehage Fleming where he spent 12 years, most recently as head of investments and joint CIO. He previously spent three years as a consultant at Mercer.

RWC’s CEO Dan Mannix says: “RWC is seeing significant opportunity as investors increasingly allocate their active management mandates to specialist investment organisations.

“We have known Arthur for many years and his background as a consultant and an investment manager make him well placed to understand the challenges our clients are facing.  The environment is rapidly changing and we think it critically important that we invest in our infrastructure to ensure we retain our focus on our clients and supporting their needs.”

In January RWC Partners hired Cressida Williams from PwC as its new chief financial officer.
