LOIM appoints Minio-Paluello as deputy CIO
Geneva-headquartered Lombard Odier Investment Managers (LOIM) has appointed Carolina Minio-Paluello as deputy chief investment officer to help build on the business’ pioneering risk-based approach to portfolio construction for institutional clients.
Based in London, she will report to Jan Straatman, chief investment officer.
Minio-Paluello joins from Citigroup where she was head of Europe, Middle East and Africa for equity and private investor solutions. Before that, she spent 11 years with Goldman Sachs, including nine at GSAM and most recently as managing director for Quantitative Investment Strategies. Prior to joining Goldman Sachs, Ms Minio-Paluello worked at JPMorgan Investments and earned a PhD in finance from the London Business School.
“Carolina’s portfolio management skills and breadth of experience, ranging from traditional hedge fund and global macro to quant strategies, make her exceptionally well suited to developing our multi-asset risk approaches and understanding the needs of the most sophisticated clients,” said Straatman.
He added: “She will help clients to benefit from our thinking about how to better handle portfolio risks and her advisory experience will help to translate client needs into even smarter strategies. We’re delighted that Carolina is joining us.”
LOIM, a subsidiary of Lombard Odier & Cie, managed 38bn Swiss francs ($42 billion) on behalf of clients at the end of December 2012. The investment management business offers clients a range of innovative products including single hedge fund strategies, thematic investments, risk-balanced asset allocation and fundamentally-weighted fixed income products.
