Jean-Jacques Friedman (pictured) has been appointed chief investment officer of Natixis Wealth Management. He will be responsible for building the financial strategy of the firm.
Friedman also chairs the monthly asset allocation committee of Natixis WM and retains his role as chief investment officer of Vega Investment Managers, a private wealth management company of BPCE group.
He joined Vega IM in 2008 where he headed the mandate management unit as from 2010 before being appointed CIO in 2015.
Prior to that, Friedman held a number of roles within Société Générale including fixed income portfolio manager, deputy director of the mandate management unit at SG Private Banking and director of the customised mandate management division at SG Asset Management.
George Eric de la Brunière, CEO of Natixis Wealth Management, said Friedman’s appointment forms “a sign of deep mutation of the firm’s private banking DNA” and demonstrates its will of setting up a management strategy that is more oriented towards affiliates of Natixis Investment Managers.
