EdRAM’s Le Grin to discuss convex portfolios at Hamburg Summit
Laurent Le Grin (pictured), fund manager Convertible Bonds at Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (EdRAM) will discuss asymmetric fixed income investment strategies at the InvestmentEurope Pan European Fund Selector Summit held from 7-9 October in Hamburg.
Le Grin argues that in the current volatile and uncertain market environment, convertible bonds tend to capture the equity upside while limiting the downside. He describes this asymmetry as the “convexity”: taking advantage of market’s growth while limiting the volatility.
Laurent Le Grin joined Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management in November 2010 as portfolio manager for the Convertible Bond team.
He first worked as an Equity Analyst at the Banque Générale du Luxembourg where he covered banks and technology in Southern Europe. In September 2002, he joined Fortis in Paris to manage European equity funds and micro-caps.
In March 2006, he joined the convertible bond team at Fortis Investments/BNP Paribas Asset Management as a Senior European Convertible Bond manager.
Le Grin holds a Master’s in Banking and Finance and a post graduate degree in Economics from the University of Paris II and is a member of the CFA Institute.
