Axa Investment Managers has appointed Garry Murdoch as its global head of compliance.
Murdoch was previously an FSA technical specialist within the regulator’s asset management department.
Murdoch has also worked as director of international compliance at AllianceBernstein.
Axa IM global chief operating officer Christophe Coquema says: “In the environment of increasing regulatory complexity, financial services firms must ensure they are abreast of the issues affecting their clients.
“We continually seek to improve our proficiency in these matters as part of our value proposition for clients, and Garry’s arrival is another substantial step forward in consolidating our control and risk management activities.”
In February, the asset manager named CNP Assurances’s Christian Gissler as its new global head of risks and controls.
