In this week's video interview for PA's Investment Influencers series, profiling the most respected individuals who select funds, decide ratings or otherwise influence the allocation of investor fund flows, we chat to Caspar Rock.
Rock, who is chief investment officer (CIO) at Cazenove Capital, joined the firm in September 2016 from Architas Multi-Manager, a part of the Axa group, where he was also CIO and responsible for all aspects of the investment activities, including investment philosophy, process and team. He also oversaw portfolio management at two of Axa group's private banks.
Rock, who has almost three decades' investment experience, previously headed up the multi-manager business at Axa Framlington from 2006 to 2008. Prior to that, he managed a range of directly invested equity and bond portfolios, and was head of European equities at Framlington as well as a member of its Healthcare team.
The Investment Influencers series, which has most recently featured Tom Slocock of Deutsche Bank Wealth Management, Etienne de Merlis of Signia and Marcus Brookes of Schroders, offers insights into how key players in the asset management sector see the world of investing and expect to deal with such challenges as greater market volatility, increased regulation and a growing trend towards short-termism.
