We are delighted to announce that Marc Craquelin, L’Agefi’s 2016 CIO of the year and former CIO and Member of the Executive Committee of La Financière De L’Echiquier, has been appointed as a Non Executive Independent Director of the EI Sturdza Funds plc.
Marc is an industry heavyweight and has extensive experience within industry, having held senior positions at Finacor, EBPF, LFDE and finally at La Financière De L’Echiquier (LFDE) since 1986. Marc joined LFDE in 2001 and was named CIO in 2009 taking charge of the investment team, with EUR 8.5 billion under management, investing in both the equity and fixed income (corporate and convertible) markets.
Marc oversaw the Investment process and provided top down macro guidance, as well as being responsible for the implementation of new tools and the expansion of LFDE’s product range.
