Franklin Templeton appoints head of institutional sales for Switzerland

Franklin Templeton has appointed Cyril Berchtold as head of institutional sales in Switzerland.

Berchtold was previously head of institutional sales for Switzerland at Natixis Investment Managers and between 2013 and 2021 he worked as a senior institutional salesperson at Goldman Sachs Asset Management.

Prior roles included at Harcourt Investment Consulting and Man Investments and he started his career at UBS Investment Bank in 2002.

Berchtold is based in Zurich and reports to Christian Leger, head of distribution Switzerland.

Leger said: “Following the appointment of Maximilian Beeck as head of wholesale Switzerland in November 2023, Cyril’s hire represents an important next step in the continued growth plan of our Swiss business. Capitalising on our extensive range of capabilities, including alternatives, we are well positioned to grow our footprint with large institutional clients.”
