Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – French asset management firm Carmignac has appointed Robin Ekman as the business development director for the Nordics. In his new role, Ekman will be responsible for supporting Carmignac’s existing clients in the Nordics and cultivating new client relationships.

“Since first launching our funds in the Nordics in 2010, our presence has steadily grown and I’m delighted to appoint a distribution director for the region,” comments Martial Godet, global head of sales at Carmignac. “Robin has a great deal of experience and strong relationships in the market and his appointment will help further entrench our position.” Ekman will report to Mikael Fellbom, a Swede who is heading Carmignac’s international business development from Paris.

“Since first launching our funds in the Nordics in 2010, our presence has steadily grown and I’m delighted to appoint a distribution director for the region.”

Robin Ekman joins Carmignac from German asset management company DWS Group, where he was responsible for the wholesale client segment in Sweden and Norway, as well as institutional clients in the Baltic region for four and a half years. Prior to that, he held distribution roles at Fidelity International and Garantum Fondkommission. Ekman holds a Bachelor of Science in Economics & Business Administration from Stockholm School of Economics.

While Carmignac has primarily focused on active strategies in multi-asset, fixed income and equity, the firm is also active in the alternative, hedge fund space. The French asset manager has been operating a European-focused long/short equity strategy for years and sees more opportunities in this area. Earlier this year, the firm strengthened its alternative investment offering by appointing merger arbitrage specialists, Fabienne Cretin-Fumeron and Stéphane Dieudonné, to launch two merger arbitrage funds.
