25 June 2019: Asset manager Architas, part of the global AXA Group, today announced the appointment of several new roles within its Dublin-based business*. The appointments include Charles Lamb as Chief Executive Officer, Niall McDonnell as senior investment manager and Richard Byrne as investment manager. In total 11 new roles have been created to help expand the Architas business in Ireland.
Hans Georgeson, CEO, Architas:
“These appointments in Dublin form part of the expansion of the Architas businesses*. Our operations in Ireland have grown in recent years and these new roles reflect the greater demand placed on the business.
“In addition to our growth in the UK and Europe we have now expanded into Asia, supported by a new range of multi-asset funds domiciled in Dublin. Given these changes we felt now was the time to build our presence in Ireland.
“Like all asset managers we have been reviewing our operations ahead of Brexit. Architas has a long history in both the UK and continental Europe and are well placed to continue to support our clients globally after the UK leaves the European Union. With Architas businesses operating in London, Dublin, Paris and Brussels we are confident there will be limited impact to our clients regardless of the type of Brexit we eventually see.”
