Tikehau Capital has appointed Frédéric Giovansili as deputy chief executive officer of Tikehau Investment Management, the company's primary asset management platform, with effect from 1 April 2019.
Reporting to Thomas Friedberger, co-chief investment officer of Tikehau Capital and chief executive officer of Tikehau Investment Management, and Henri Marcoux, deputy chief executive officer of Tikehau Capital and chief executive officer of Tikehau Investment Management, Giovansili will be responsible for Tikehau Investment Management's sales, marketing and business development.
Giovansili's appointment comes as Tikehau Capital sets two core targets to achieve by 2022: reaching over €35bn in assets under management, and reporting over €100m of net operating profit from the asset management activities, over five times the amount recorded in 2018 for this business.
Since 2017, Giovansili has been head of Northern and Western European sales across global markets and Client Financing Solutions at Nomura. In this role, he headed up an international sales team based in five offices covering 10 countries, working across both investment banking and global markets. Previously, he was based in London and then Paris for Citi where he was head of global markets for France, Belgium and Luxembourg for 11 years. Appointed managing director at Citi in 2007, he led a team working across the full range of products (equities, FX and fixed income) for financial institutions and large corporates. Before joining Citi, he held several roles at Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan in London.
