Before that, he held comms roles at JPES Partners and Henderson Global Investors.

In his new role at Unigestion, Hogan will also help manage internal comms and branding for the business globally.

Based in London, he will report to Lynn Pattinson, head of corporate comms, media and branding at Unigestion, who is based at the firm’s Geneva HQ.

Pattinson said: “I am delighted to welcome Alex to Unigestion and my team. His UK background and experience will be invaluable as we continue to expand and build the Unigestion brand and will add a useful perspective.”

Hogan added: “I’m delighted to be joining Unigestion at such an exciting time for the business as it looks to expand into new markets and distribution channels globally.

“Clear and effective communication with the media and most importantly, our clients, will be pivotal to our success and how we evolve as a company and brand in the coming years.”
