Natixis Global Asset Management’s Portfolio Research and Consulting Group has announced four new appointments to its London office.
Julien Dauchez joins as consultant, Xavier Lassau and Narimane Agha join as junior analysts and Graham Brewster has relocated from the Boston Portfolio Research and Consulting Group.
Some 30 people work in NGAM’s resarch and consulting business in the US and UK. Their analysis focuses primarily on risk, including identifying and qualifying risk, developing a risk budget and understanding risk exposures to improve diversification with a goal of achieving better returns with lower overall volatility.
With 16 years of experience, Dauchez will focus on expanding activities in France, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Belgium as well as among institutional investors. Previous experience includes working as director at Barclays Capital.
Brewster has joined the London team to help deliver a consistent global service to advisers and their clients across the globe.
Lassau joins from Amundi in Paris where he was a quantitative risk analyst and Agha joins from Natixis AM, also in Paris, where she worked as a quantitative analyst in the risk measurement team.
