Matteo, who served as a non-executive Director of [London-listed] Jupiter Fund Management plc for eight years, has been involved in the mutual fund industry in Italy for 30 years. He was responsible for launching the first foreign funds into Italy during the 1990s while working for American Express Bank and ran the Italian operations for Pioneer, the second-largest asset manager in Italy, between 2000 and 2006. Matteo also has deep experience of the alternatives sector, having worked for Olympia Capital Management and Hermes for six years. In addition to his role at Jupiter, Matteo will continue to serve as a Senior Adviser to one of Italy’s largest family wealth businesses.

In his capacity as Executive Adviser, Italy for Jupiter, Matteo will use his extensive knowledge and contacts to establish Jupiter’s business in Italy. Matteo is now actively seeking to recruit a senior individual in the funds industry to head Jupiter’s sales operation.

Maarten Slendebroek, Chief Executive Officer of Jupiter, said: “Jupiter’s international strategy is to follow our clients and base ourselves in the key markets where they do business. Italy is a critical market for us in that regard and we are delighted that someone who knows our business and the Italian market so well will be helping us achieve our ambitions there.”

Matteo said: “In the eight years I served on Jupiter’s Board, I got to know the business and its people very well. Jupiter has a culture and reputation for delivering outperformance that will resonate well with clients in Italy and I am very excited about the opportunity to help Maarten and the Board achieve a key strategic aim.”
