F&C adds Sonnbichler to team

F&C Investments has appointed Oliver Sonnbichler as a fund manager within its multi-manager team.

Sonnbichler joins from Navigant Consulting where he worked on projects for investment management and manager selection businesses.

He was head of equity fund research at UBS Private Bank until 1994 when he joined Morgan Stanley Private Bank International as head of the third-party funds platform, a position he held until 2007.

During his time at Morgan Stanley, he was a member of the private wealth management asset allocation committee, led a team responsible for constructing and managing fund portfolios and also implemented an advisory platform for the sale of third-party funds through the firm’s distribution network.

Sonnbichler’s appointment follows that of Paul Carne from Crosby Partners in June.

Head of UK retail John Yule says: “Multi-manager is a flagship product area for F&C’s UK retail business where we have ambitious plans to grow further, particularly through the development of our innovative lifestyle fund range.

“This appointment means that the team is now at full strength and in terms of collective years of investment experience, we believe we are now in our strongest position ever. We are confident that we have the right blend of both analytical and qualitative skills in the multi-manager team to deliver excellent investment solutions for our clients.”
