Neuberger Berman Strengthens Italian Team

Stephen Little, Reporter, London, 9 June 2014


Neuberger Berman, the private investment manager, has appointed Carlo Roncalli to develop its coverage of the Italian advisor market.

Neuberger Berman, the private investment manager, has appointed Carlo Roncalli as vice president of the intermediary client group to its Italian team.

Based in Milan, Roncalli will be responsible for developing the firm's coverage of the Italian advisor market with a focus on clients and private banking relationships. He reports to Marco Avanzo Barbieri, head of Italy, and Tom Douie, who oversees the firms third party distribution efforts in Europe.

He joins from Janus Capital International, where he covered the advisory network across Italy. He began his career at JP Morgan Asset Management where he served for six years in a similar role.

In April, Neuberger Berman launched its Emerging Market Debt Blend Fund in the UK.

Operated under Irish-domiciled UCITS fund umbrella Neuberger Berman Investment Funds, the new fund will give investors direct exposure to underlying securities in emerging market debt, adopting an alpha-driven solution.

Earlier this year, the firm announced Charles Soullard will lead the firm’s French client efforts. He was brought in following interest from the French investment community, alongside the firm's desire to further service its local clients with its investment strategies. He reports to Dik van Lomwel, head of EMEA and Latin America at the employee-controlled investment management firm.
