Pioneer adds duo to European fixed income team
Pioneer Investments has added two senior investment professionals to its European fixed income team in an effort to strengthen its offering.
Vianney Hocquet has joined from BNP Paribas as a corporate portfolio manager. His previous role was that of credit trader on the fixed income proprietary desk.
The second appointment, Elisabeth Van Sante (pictured), has moved from Credit Agricole CIB in London to take the position of a credit analyst. She was previously a credit research analyst covering European financials.
Both new hires will be based in Dublin. Vianney reports to Tanguy Le Saout, head of European fixed income, and Elisabeth reports to Garrett Walsh, head of credit research Europe.
Tanguy Le Saout commented: “Through our dynamic active management approach, underpinned by a strong risk budgeting system, we have been able to successfully navigate the euro crisis, providing positive results for our clients. It is critical that we have the right calibre of people to continue achieving these strong results.”
