Asset management firm AXA Investment Managers has promoted Tim Gardener to global head of its newly-formed institutional client group.
The European firm announced in a statement released last week that Gardener will be responsible for leading AXA’s offering and approach to institutional clients in his new role. AXA’s institutional client group was formed to reflect the firm’s “focus on the investment needs of distinct client groups.”
AXA European head of consultant relations Lisa O’Connor will replace Time Gardener as global head of consultant relations.
Prior joining AXA in 2010, Gardener worked at Mercer Investment Consulting for 24 years in various roles, latterly in the role of global chief investment officer.
Founded in 1994, AXA currently manages about $762 billion in assets.
