LONDON, England, July 5, 2021 (PRESS RELEASE) -- M&G Investments has appointed a chief investment officer to lead its £57bn equities division as part of its commitment to revitalise its active equity investment capabilities.

Fabiana Fedeli (pictured) will take on the newly created role, reporting to M&G's chief investment officer, Jack Daniels. She joins the business on 23 August and will be based in London.

As part of the revitalisation announced last year, M&G said it wanted to deliver more consistent investment performance and develop strategies that met evolving consumer needs.

Prior to joining M&G, Fedeli was global head of fundamental equities at Robeco Asset Management, with direct responsibility for three active equity strategies.

M&G CIO Daniels said: 

"Equities will always have an essential role to play in an investor's portfolio and we believe that active equity management will deliver greater value for clients over the long-term. [This] appointment demonstrates our commitment to this vital asset class, bringing a wealth of investment experience in both equities and sustainability."
