Eurofin Capital has appointed Laurent Chevallier as head of alternative research and portfolio management.

Chevallier will lead Eurofin Capital’s total return research and asset management activities.

His role also includes running the firm’s range of multi-manager products and developing new absolute return investment strategies.

Before joining Eurofin Capital, Chevallier was executive director and head of manager selection and investments at Unigestion in Geneva, where he was in charge of a 12 man team of analysts and researchers managing USD3.5bn in hedge fund portfolios with top decile rankings.

Previously, he was chief investment officer and risk manager at BIM in Geneva. Chevallier started his career in the alternative investment industry as a futures trader in New York.

"Laurent Chevallier is clearly one of the best investment professionals in the alternative investment industry," says James Edwards, Eurofin Capital’s chief investment officer. "He has a remarkable understanding and experience of total return strategies and of the risks they involve. Laurent has an impressive ten year track record as portfolio manager of both hedge funds and fund of hedge funds. We are honoured to welcome him to Eurofin Capital.”

“Eurofin Capital’s flexible and open architecture approach to asset management is unique,” adds Chevallier. “I was attracted to this client-centric philosophy and I’m looking forward to working with James and to contribute to the company’s total return investment solutions.”

Eurofin Capital is the Eurofin Group’s asset management subsidiary. From its Geneva, Lausanne and London offices, the firm serves an international clientele composed of institutions, pension funds and family offices.
