Eaton Vance and Investec make high-level appointments in Germany

Eaton Vance Management has appointed Thomas Body to the newly-created role of business development director for Germany and Austria.

The London-headquartered investment firm is currently awaiting regulatory approval to open a local branch in Frankfurt which will eventually be managed by Body (pictured).

In the meantime, Body will start work expanding the firm’s client relationships with German pension funds, investment consultants, insurance companies and institutional fund buyers.

Body joins Eaton Vance from Aberdeen Standard Investments, where he was head of business development financial institutions for Europe ex-UK.

Investec Asset Management, meanwhile, has expanded its German team with the hire of Franziska Laepple to the newly-created role of client relationship manager.

Laepple joins from Alliance Bernstein where she was responsible for developing the firm’s alternatives’ offerings with financial institutions and institutional clients.

She will continue to grow the firm’s local presence in response to client demand for its core equity and multi-asset investment strategies.
