Carmignac Gestion - Marco Fiorini has joined the company’s sales team as head of professional clients in Switzerland. Before joining Carmignac Gestion, Fiorini was managing director for professional clients at Clariden Leu Asset Management. He started his career in 1998 at Julius Baer Investment Funds Services.

Mercer - Emma Douglas, current head of DC sales at BlackRock, will be moving to Mercer at the end of next month. While her exact role is unknown, the consultancy said it was in the process of developing a new workplace savings solution, with Douglas heading up the department. Prior to BlackRock, she spent time at Threadneedle as the company’s head of DC, so it is thought the new position will relate to the defined contribution market.

MGM Advantage - The retirement income specialist has appointed seven business development managers, all of which have come over from the Living Time sales team. The new hires include Nick Callaghan, Lyndsey Burke, Richard Turner, Bevis Renn, Fergal Cummins, Sandra Smith and Tony Grillo. MGM said the appointments were needed to help meet growing demand for its asset-back annuity, launched last year.

Corestate
- Phillip Burns will take over as chief executive at the private equity real estate investment firm in February. The former Terra Firma Capital Partners managing director will be based at Corestate’s headquarters in Zug, Switzerland, but will split his time between each of the firm’s partner offices in London, Frankfurt and Luxembourg.

Invista - Chief executive Duncan Owen has stepped down from his role as he enters exclusive talks over a management buyout of the company’s asset management business. Owen retains his role as chief executive of the company’s asset management subsidiary, Invista Real Estate Investment Management. Douglas Ferrans, currently non-executive chairman of Invista, becomes executive chairman with immediate effect.

Grosvenor Fund Management - Jeffrey Weingarten is to take the role of chief executive in March, succeeding Stuart Beevor. At the same time, James Raynor, currently director for continental Europe, has been appointed to the new role of chief investment officer.  Robert Davis, currently finance director, will become chief operations officer.
