ICI Global adds MD for Europe


ICI Global has named Patrice Bergé-Vincent to the newly created position of managing director, ICI Global Europe. 

Bergé-Vincent will report to ICI Global Managing Director Dan Waters when he joins the trade body by mid-April. He will lead ICI Global’s work on major policy and regulatory issues in the European Union affecting regulated funds and their managers worldwide, and will serve in the organisation’s senior leadership. He also will oversee ICI Global’s European member relations and development efforts, and engage closely with regional and national fund associations in Europe.
Bergé-Vincent is currently a partner with PwC France, where he leads the asset management regulatory practice and coordinates PwC’s central cluster (EMEA) asset management regulatory work. Before holding that position, he worked within the Department of Regulation Policy and International Affairs at the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), the French financial market regulator, serving as head of the Asset Management Regulation Policy Division.
During his AMF tenure, Bergé-Vincent chaired the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) Standing Committee 5, dedicated to collective investment schemes. He also was seconded from AMF to the Asset Management Unit of the then European Commission’s Directorate-General Internal Market and Services.
“Appointing a senior-level leader of our European work is the natural next step for a maturing organisation,” says F William McNabb, chairman and CEO of the Vanguard Group, and chairman of the Investment Company Institute (ICI). “ICI Global has already advanced the concerns of global funds in policy and regulatory circles. Patrice’s deep expertise in European fund regulation policy will extend that work in the midst of a wide array of crucial regulatory debates currently underway in the European Union.”
“Our policy brief continues to develop and deepen,” says ICI President and CEO Paul Schott Stevens. “The European regulatory agenda carries important consequences for global regulated funds and their investors. Patrice will play a vital role in further strengthening and supporting our analysis and advocacy, to the benefit of funds and their shareholders.”
“Patrice’s skills and experience are exceptional, and an ideal fit with ICI Global’s needs at this next juncture in its development,” says Waters.
“The pace of regulatory reform in the past few years is the highest I have ever seen in my career, and its potential global impact on funds has never been greater,” says Bergé-Vincent. “ICI Global has quickly become a leading voice in these debates. I look forward to joining in their advocacy.”
Bergé-Vincent is a graduate of the École nationale d’administration (ENA).
