Pimco appoints head of France
Pimco has announced the appointment of Matthieu Louanges, managing director, as head of France.
Louanges replaces Emanuele Ravano, who still heads Pimco’s global wealth management team in Europe.
He will work alongside Bettina Mazzocchi, who has been promoted executive vice president, and Julie-Anna Miny, senior vice president.
Based in Munich, Louanges will remain head of Pimco’s financial institutions group for EMEA and will still have oversight responsibility for Pimco’s business in Switzerland.
Louanges, who has 21 years of experience, joined Pimco in 2000. He has co-headed the Munich portfolio management team, managed European portfolios and was part of the European strategy group.
He also served as a managing director on the board of Allianz Global Investors KAG, representing Pimco’s portfolio management.
Formerly, Louanges worked for Pimco’s parent company, Allianz. He started his career at Deutsche Bank in 1994 within the fixed income sales departement in Frankfurt and Paris. Louanges then moved to the Caisse Centrale de Réescompte in 1995 to become a portfolio manager.
