Alternative investment manager, Regal Funds Management, has announced the appointment of Rebecca Fesq as its new global head of distribution and marketing.
In her new role she would lead Regal’s global client strategy. Prior to joining Regal, Fesq worked at Pendal group for five years during which time she held a number of senior role and she also served as head of client experience and direct.
She had a proven track record across sales, marketing and client experience in the funds management and investment banking industry.
“Rebecca’s appointment reflects the strong demand we are seeing from a growing number of investors and their advisers who recognise and value and ability to consistently deliver true active returns,” Regal’s chief investment officer and chairman, Philip King, said.
The company said that other recent hires included Madusha Seneviratna, a former ER doctor who would strengthen Regal’s healthcare sector specialisation, and Justin Harsel and Nick Seeto who both joined as portfolio managers of Regal’s global equity income and volatility strategies.
The company also recently hired James Hood, a former Rothschild mergers and acquisitions banker who would serve as lead energy sector analyst.
