#66 - Frédérique Carrier - RBC's Head of Investment Strategy on Her Global Market Outlook
Frédérique Carrier is Managing Director and Head of Investment Strategy at RBC Wealth Management; she heads up the firm’s London equity desk and formulates equity strategy for the UK & Europe. Frédérique also co-chairs RBC Wealth Management’s global asset allocation committee, GPAC, which determines asset allocation for the firm’s global client base. As of the end of last year, RBC had 843.6 billion (CAD) under administration, making it the fifth-largest wealth manager in the world.
Having spent 8 years at companies like Williams de Broë – later acquired by Investec -, managing several European equity mandates, Frédérique had previously taken in 5 years at BBVA Latinvest as a sell side analyst covering Latin America. A subsequent stint with Invesco, covering emerging markets and global equities, preceded her current position.
Frédérique and I discuss what leading a global asset manager is like, before we embark on a whistle-stop tour across the globe, where Frédérique offers her investment outlook for the US, Europe & UK, and Emerging Markets too. Enjoy the interview!
