iM Square, the sole European investment and development platform dedicated to asset management and supported by Eurazeo who will become its reference shareholder, announces the appointment of Jeffrey Seeley as Head of its future US distribution platform: iM Global Partner US.

With strong ambitions for the US market, iM Square contributes actively to the development of the investment companies it invests in through financial backing, human engagement and operational distribution capacity, now both in Europe and in the US.

He notably spent over 16 years building AMG Funds (and its predecessor Managers Investment Group) with his last four years at AMG Funds as Head of US Distribution and Executive Committee member. He developed customised distribution and service strategies for more than 20 affiliates of the company.

We are convinced of his ability to achieve the great ambitions we have for iM Global Partner US and we consider the US to be an essential and core market.

Jeffrey Seeley, new Head of Business Development at iM Global Partner US adds: “I am thrilled to join iM Square Group to create iM Global Partner US which has great ambitions on a market that I know well. It is a very unique model in Europe and I am glad to participate in their development in the US. I look forward to bring my knowledge of the market to the unique and value-added iM Square business model, based on flexibility, both in investment and distribution capability brought to our current and future partners”.
