Dachicourt, who will report to Craig Lewis, Director and Head of Investment Solutions, will be responsible for the selection of both single and multi-manager hedge funds, identifying and advising on emerging trends, monitoring funds and designing hedge fund proposals for high net worth clients who meet their individual risk and return requirements.
Prior to joining Credit Suisse, Dachicourt spent three years as a senior Hedge Fund Manager at Barclays Private Bank, where she was responsible for successfully managing three of Barclays' in-house discretionary hedge fund portfolios. She began her career at UBS Wealth Management where she took part in the creation of their UK hedge fund business.

Eleonore will work closely with our existing hedge fund teams across the Credit Suisse, and externally with advisors, to ensure our clients benefit from a comprehensive and robust platform."
Speaking about her appointment, Dachicourt said: "I am looking forward to the challenge that my new role offers. The hedge fund industry continues to grow with great pace and our clients expect us to grow and develop with it by providing a premier service which meets their requirements".
