Lemanik Asset Management has made three new hires within its Luxembourg third-party management company to accelerate its positioning as the reference governance provider to UCITS and Alternative Investment Funds.
Alexandre Dumont has joined Lemanik as head of portfolio management and member of the executive committee; Stephen Roberts has joined the business development team with particular focus on illiquid asset classes; and Antonis Anastasiou has joined as head of product management and structuring for Alternative Investment Funds.
With combined experience in the investment fund industry of more than 50 years, the three new hires join Lemanik as a team, having been instrumental in building an AIFM platform at their previous company.
Lemanik provides governance, compliance, risk management and portfolio management services to UCITS and Alternative Investment Funds.
Philippe Meloni, CEO of Lemanik Asset Management, says: “We are delighted that we have been able to attract Alexandre, Stephen and Antonis to Lemanik, bringing their extensive experience of alternative asset classes and their wide network of contacts to the firm. In so doing, Lemanik, as one of the largest UCITS management companies, is pioneering the institutionalisation of the third party AIFM segment of the fund industry within Luxembourg. Leveraging off the ambitions, the reputation and the infrastructure of Lemanik Group, the aim is to capitalise on the fast growing dynamics of the industry to position Lemanik as the reference institutional governance provider across traditional and alternative asset classes.”
