Global asset manager Aviva Investors has tapped former Santander Asset Management executive Sunil Krishnan for the newly created role of head of multi-asset funds. 

In his new role, Krishnan will oversee the team managing multi-asset portfolios across institutional and retail clients, the company said. His appointment bolsteres Aviva’s multi-asset team and is part of plans to further strengthen the firm’s multi-asset and multi-strategy efforts.

Krishnan will join Aviva in October, the company continued. He comes aboard from Santander Asset Management, where he was a senior portfolio manager responsible for outcome-oriented funds and asset allocation strategy.  He will report to the group’s global head of multi-assets, Peter Fitzgerald.

Prior to Santander, Krishnan worked at Hermes Investment Management as head of global asset allocation and at the BT Pension Scheme as head of market strategy. Earlier in his career, Krishnan was a multi-asset portfolio manager and strategist at BlackRock with responsibilities for institutional and retail clients.

Aviva Investors is the global asset management business of financial services giant Aviva Plc. The unit operates in 15 countries in Asia Pacific, Europe, North America and the United Kingdom, and has some £351 billion in assets under management. The alternative income solutions platform has £21 billion in AUM spanning infrastructure debt, unlevered infrastructure, private corporate debt, real estate finance, real estate long income and structured finance.
