BlueBay Asset Management, a specialist bond manager, has appointed a retail sales director for Italy.
Michele Giarrizzo joins in a newly created role ten months after BlueBay officially opened its Italian office.
His most recent job was as a senior sales manager at Robeco Institutional Asset Management. Previous roles included at Legg Mason Global Asset Management and Axa Investment Managers.
Tommaso De Giuseppe, head of sales for Italy, said: "Historically, BlueBay’s client base has primarily comprised of institutional investors. As we continue to expand as well as focus our efforts within the financial institutions space, Michele’s knowledge and experience amongst this segment of investors within the Italian market will be highly complementary of the wider team’s skillset."
