Amundi reshuffles roles in its London branch
Amundi has appointed Laurent Guillet as chief executive of its London Branch.
Guillet will take on his new responsibilities on June 1, while maintaining his role as chief executive of Amundi Alternative Investments which he has held since May 2011.
Since October 2010, Amundi London Branch has been under the responsibility of Laurent Crosnier who held the dual role of CEO and CIO. Under his direction, the teams at Amundi London Branch have successfully developed its investment activities.
In order to further strengthen this business, Amundi has therefore decided to separate these two roles with the nomination of Guillet.
Guillet will focus on business development with UK investors building on Amundi’s strong expertise and will promote Amundi London’s fund management expertise globally.
Now focusing on the investment side of the business, Laurent Crosnier will maintain his responsibilities as Chief Investment Officer of the London Branch and deputy head of Amundi’s Fixed Income platform under the direction of Eric Brard, global head of fixed income.
“In this role, Laurent will continue to drive the business as a centre of excellence in fund management for all global products including credit, government bonds, and emerging market debt, and equities,” Amundi said.
