BNP Paribas Investment Partners has appointed Guillermo Felices to the newly created role of senior market strategist in its multi asset solutions team. 

Based in London, Felices will be responsible for generating emerging market asset allocation research and identifying relative value ideas within multiple asset classes.

The research done by Felices will be integral to the Parvest Multi-Asset Income Emerging fund, the firm said.

Felices will report to Colin Graham, who is CIO of multi asset solutions and head of active asset allocation.

Felices, who has an experience of 15 years in sell-side research and policymaking, most recently served as head of asset allocation research for Europe at Barclays.

He previously also worked as head of foreign exchange strategy for Europe at Barclays and senior global macro strategist at Citigroup.

“The addition of Guillermo will deepen our resources and enhance our efforts to deliver consistent returns for our clients, and I am very pleased to welcome him to BNP Paribas Investment Partners,” Graham noted.
