Gottex Group has appointed Laurent Chevallier as a senior member of its portfolio management team.
Chevallier has 16 years of experience with alternative investments having worked for Quest Partners, Bucephale Investment Managers and Unigestion. For the past four years, Laurent was most recently Portfolio Manager of the Vasken macro fund, a fund with a strong tail risk protection bias, trading systematic macro themes, trends, carry trades – in forex, yield curves and commodities – and index spreads.
Arpad Busson, Executive Chairman, says: “As Gottex pursues its strategic initiative in the area of Altermative Risk Premia, Laurent’s hands-on experience managing macro hedge fund programs, alternative beta strategies and factor-based investment approaches will represent a major asset and significantly strengthen our capabilities. Laurent is a strong addition to the Gottex team as we continue to develop innovative alternative investment solutions for our clients.”
Chevallier joins the firm just as they have appointed a new Chief Financial Officer, Pierre Udriot. Udriot joined the firm from Ernst & Young, where he was a senior manager, specialising in the financial industry.
