Pan-European private banking group BL European Private Bankers (KBL epb) has appointed Bill Street as group chief investment officer.
Most recently Street served as chief investment officer, EMEA, at State Street Global Advisors.
Building on his 25 years of experience in London, Berlin and New York, Street will further enhance KBLepb's status as an advice-led organisation that's smart, sharp and fast to the market with crystal-clear convictions.
At State Street Global Advisors, where he served for over a decade, Street was responsible for more than €500bn in assets, managed across multiple asset-class strategies and investment centers. Previously, he served as head of Fixed Income at UniCredit. He earlier served at Bankgesellschaft Berlin, Commerzbank, Banque Indosuez and J.P. Morgan.
In his new role, Street will work alongside current Group CIO Stefan Van Geyt, who will assume the position of group head of Investment Products & Services. In that capacity, Van Geyt will oversee a wide range of relevant functions, including Asset Management & Servicing, Structured Products, Alternative Investments, Lending Origination and Wealth Planning & Structuring.
Prior to joining KBL epb in 2013, Van Geyt served as director of Investments, Belgium, at BNP Paribas Fortis, where he oversaw all investment-related activity for the Brussels-based private banking unit. Over the previous decade, he held a range of positions in Luxembourg and Switzerland.
