Gian Luca Giurlani

I was brought up in South America (Argentina, Uruguay and Peru) by Italian parents. For my university studies, relocated to Italy, where I graduated from the Università degli Studi di Pisa in Economics and Banking, later taught and lectured in the finance MBA and PhD programs. 

I started my working career in The Asset Managment industry in Milan, in 2000 relocated to the UK to join Janus Capital Group, where I focussed on the distribution of the mutual funds and strategies in the intermediary and institutional markets. In 2004 joined Forsyth Partners and became the CEO for Europe and global head of sales and distribution. In 2008 joined PIMCO to became an Executive Vice President of the EMEA global wealth management team.

In 2016 joined TCW as Managing Director in the International Marketing Group. My main responsibility is the promotion of TCW strategies and mutual funds, in the Institutional and Intermediary space. I‘m also the Chairman of the TCW Funds (UCITS), board member of TCW Europe and Branch manager of the Italian office. 

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and sailing.
