Fidelity has hired Romain Boscher, former head of Equities at Amundi as new global CIO Equities.
From April on, Boscher will be based in London and oversee the group’s regional portfolio management teams. Paras Anand (CIO Equities, Europe), Takashi Maruyama (CIO Equities, Japan) and Tim Orchard (CIO Equities, Asia Pacific ex-Japan) will report to Boscher, as will the global equity research function led by Henk-Jan Rikkerink. Boscher reports to Bart Grenier, global head of Asset Management.
He replaces Dominic Rossi who announced last year that he would be stepping down in early 2018 to take on a part-time advisory role for the group.
Boscher has spent the last seven years as head of Equities at Amundi Asset Management. Prior to this he spent 11 years at Groupama, among others as deputy CEO and CIO.
