Charles Daulon du Laurens has been promoted to global head of client capital group at AXA IM - Real Assets.

Laurens will lead the new client capital group, comprising of investor relations professionals across Asia, North America and Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

He will be responsible for client relationship management and capital raising across the AXA IM - Real Assets product range, including equity and debt offerings.
