European mutual funds platform Allfunds Bank has appointed former Eurizon Capital’s head of international development, Ugo Sansone, to head its business in Luxembourg.
Sanson has spent his entire career at Italian bank Intesa Sanpaolo Group, leading the international commercial activities of its asset management subsidiary, Eurizon Capital for the last ten years. During his time at Eurizon, Sanson led the international commercial and client service activities, including a role at the firm’s Sicav management board.
Before his time at Eurizon, Sansone held various roles at Sanpaolo Group both in the UK and Luxembourg.
Allfunds is hoping that under Sansone’s leadership, the firm’s Luxembourg operations will be able to support the international growth of the platform and incorporate more institutional clients across France and the Benelux region.
“We consider Luxembourg strategic for our corporate development, as it one of the most important financial centres at the heart of Europe, is a natural and logical evolution as Allfunds becomes ever more successful in following and supporting our clients and providers in their international expansion,” saus Gianluca Renzini, Allfunds’ deputy general manager.
