Alquity Investment Management adds two to team


London-based Alquity Investment Management is pleased to announce two new arrivals to its growing team.

Renee Arnold joins as Director of Sales for North America, bringing with her over 30 years’ experience in the investment industry and was previously Head of Business Development in Canada for Aberdeen Standard Investments. While independently covering sales and marketing efforts at Aberdeen in Canada, Arnold grew assets from nil to USD3.7 billion in less than five years. Under her leadership the firm’s Canadian AUM grew to CAD17 billion making her sales team one of the most successful in the company’s history. After taking time more recently to support numerous non-profits in the US, India and Africa, Arnold now arrives at Alquity to oversee Alquity’s North American sales efforts.
Arnold says: “Partnering with Alquity aligns my extensive business experience with impacting the lives of those who are abandoned and left behind simply because of their geographic location.”
Also joining Alquity this month is Marnie Aragon-Uy who will lead responsibility for Quantitative Risk. Formerly Global Head of Quantitative Analytics at Aberdeen, Aragon-Uy was a critical member of the organisation which managed assets in excess of USD100 billion. With a focus on investment performance, Aragon-Uy, through integration of quantitative risk framework at Aberdeen, supported the improvement in five-year investment performance to 80 per cent of funds under management.
Aragon-Uy says: “At some point in your career, there needs to be a defined purpose that wants to challenge the status quo. For me, working with Alquity does exactly that. They do something no one else does: not only focusing on ESG investing within Emerging Markets, but taking that further by investing back into the communities with its Transforming Lives initiative.”
Brad Crombie, who joined as Alquity CEO in November, says: “I’m delighted to welcome both Renee and Marnie to the Alquity team. They both bring considerable investment experience to the company and are joining at a pivotal moment as we set our sights on growing our client base globally. Alquity is incredibly fortunate to have landed such exceptional talents who possess emerging market experience and share in Alquity’s vision to transform lives.”
The two will join a growing team, who earlier in the year saw additional hires Alex Boggis who heads UK & Australia Sales for Alquity (also formerly of Aberdeen) and Francisco Almada as CFO/COO (formerly of Portland Hill).
