Signia hires ex-GLG director to head hedge fund business
In the two latest coups to her business, Nathalie Dauriac-Stoebe has poached a former senior employee of GLG Partners, and a former employee of Coutts & Co where she used to work.
London-based wealth management boutique Signia adds Laurent Jeanmart as director and Andrew Larsen as associate director.
Jeanmart leaves GLG after five years to head up Dauriac-Stoebe’s hedge fund and third party funds offering. At GLG, he held roles as an investment director, portfolio manager and senior analyst in its fund of hedge funds division.
Previously, he was an associate at French investment bank Lazard Frères, working in its private wealth division based in Paris. There, he offered services to European ultra high net worths.
With a wealth of financial qualifications behind him, including two Master’s in Finance and Political Sciences, an MBA from graduate business school INSEAD and a CFA, Jeanmart will be considered a major coup for Dauriac-Stoebe’s business.
Larsen meanwhile moves from Dauriac-Stoebe’s former employer Coutts & Co, which she left before setting up Signia in March of last year.
Larsen was a portfolio manager at Coutts for five years, also working for ultra high net worths. He began his career at Coutts’ parent company Natwest as a financial planning manager.
