Artisan Partners Taps Peterzens For EMEA Business Development Role

Jul 14 2017 | 10:54pm ET

Global investment management firm Artisan Partners has named former Henderson Investments executive Marc Peterzens as a director on the company’s EMEA distribution team. 

In his new role, Peterzens will concentrate on business development in the Nordic and Benelux regions. He will be based in London.

Peterzens previously headed Henderson’s institutional business in Nordic nations, Benelux and Middle East regions. Beforehand, he was head of the Nordic region for State Street Global Advisors. 

Peterzens is the second senior hire to join Artisan in the past three months, following the May appointment of former Nomura Asset Management business development specialist Pearse Monaghan as director for EMEA distribution. 

"[Marc] reflects our belief that high value-added client service should accompany our high value-added investment capabilities, particularly as we continue to enjoy strong demand from sophisticated investors in northern continental Europe," said Andrew Marks, managing director and head of EMEA distribution at Artisan, in a statement. 

Founded in 1994 by Andy and Carlene Ziegler, Artisan Partners is a global investment management firm that provides a broad range of high value-added investment strategies in growing asset classes to sophisticated clients around the world. As of June 30, 2017, the company managed $109.4 billion in assets on behalf of institutional and individual clients.
