Lombard Odier Investment Managers (LOIM) has added Valentin Petrescou and Didier Anthamatten to its alternative investment subsidiary 1798 Alternatives, where they will launch a Global Macro Absolute Return strategy for institutional and private clients, which is due to go live in Q3 2024

Petrescou and Anthamatten are joined by their former team members Jeremy Gatto, Philipp Mueller and Max Witschel, who are all transitioning to LOIM from Credit Suisse.

The team formerly managed the Hedging the Cycle and Multi Asset Premia investment strategies at Credit Suisse Wealth Management, which peaked at $1.8bn AUM. According to a press statement, the upcoming UCITS investment vehicle, which combines those two strategies, is designed to provide clients with highly liquid diversified exposure across asset classes and aims to generate robust returns in all market environments.

Prior to joining Credit Suisse in 2019, Petrescou worked at UBS, where he managed the Short-Term Rates Trading business globally.

Anthamatten spent four years at Credit Suisse and previously worked at Unigestion, where he managed over $2bn assets through various multi-asset fund and mandate vehicles.

The team will be based in Geneva and Zurich, reporting to Christophe Khaw, CIO of 1798 Alternatives.
