Abu Dhabi’s Wealth Fund Said to Hire Axa Private Equity’s Florin

Christophe Florin, chief operating officer of Axa Private Equity, has left to join the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, according to three people with knowledge of the matter, as it seeks to expand its staff for acquisitions.

Florin, who was also a member of the executive board of French insurer Axa SA’s private-equity unit, will head ADIA’s emerging markets private-equity team, said the people, who declined to be identified because the appointment has yet to be announced. He’ll be based in Abu Dhabi, they said.
