Acadian lures CFS’s Mukundan

Just a week after the ending of the exclusive retail distribution arrangement between Acadian Asset Management and Colonial First State (CFS), Acadian has recruited a key CFS executive to its ranks – Mark Mukundan.

The retail distribution deal with CFS ended on 31 December, 2019, and Acadian announced on Monday it had appointed Mukundan to the newly-created role of vice-president, product and wholesale markets.
