BNP Paribas Investment Partners has made two new hires to bolster its business development and client relationship teams, appointing Angus Carson to head of superannuation and government institutions and Stephen Copeland as manager of client services and operations.
Carson has over two decades of experience in the financial services industry, spanning institutional business development, investment consulting, custody and middle and front office management, and has six years' experience in chartered accounting.
He will take responsibility for developing client relationships and building the business across its investment solutions including Australian equities, infrastructure, fund of hedge funds, global fixed income and private equity.
Carson joins BNP Paribas from Ambassador Funds Management Services, where he was associate director and also held positions with Macquarie Professional Services, Merrill Lynch, Intech Investment Consultants and Deutsche Asset Management.
He will relocate to the Sydney office at the end of the month.
Copeland joins the team from MLC Private Equity, where he was a senior analyst.
Working in Ireland at companies including Northern Trust Investor Services and Kenny, Whelan and Company Chartered Accountants, he also joins the Sydney team on 27 August.
BNP Paribas chief executive David Grybas said the "revitalised team and approach" would allow the company to leverage its investment partner network to provide a vast range of investment solutions.
