Floden says: “Insight has established an impressive reputation in the UK and Europe for delivering client- focused, outcome-oriented investment solutions. Our business is at the forefront of developing new ways of investing. Joining the team in New York as the firm builds on its franchise in the region and continues its evolution as a truly global investment business is an exciting prospect. I very much look forward to working with Philip and his team and to playing a part in the next chapter of the development of Insight.”
