10 Questions with Michael Bane, Head of US Investor Relations
To celebrate our tenth anniversary, we interviewed three employees from offices around the world to share successes and memorable moments from their time at Ardian – and their vision of the next ten years.
In this segment, we speak with Michael Bane, Head of US Investor Relations. After 12 years at Ardian, Michael has effectively led Ardian's US Investor Relations team, playing a pivotal role in cultivating and sustaining client relationships across North and Latin America.
When asked for some of the top 10 reasons clients give for choosing Ardian, Michael states “reasons one, two, and three in the eyes of investors would be the strong, risk-adjusted performance”.
Since joining Ardian in 2011, Michael has consistently anticipated investors' evolving needs and priorities. His most ambitious project to date has been the continuous expansion of the firm's Americas-based investor relations team, which has added eight new team members covering roles in the US, Canada, and Latin America. This team encompasses institutional coverage, client servicing, product management, and the recent establishment of a dedicated private wealth team in the US.
The success of Michael's investment team stems not only from their robust risk-adjusted performance but also from their embodiment of Ardian's core values of entrepreneurship, excellence, and loyalty.
