Pierre-Edouard Coiffard has joined Olympia Capital Management as deputy chief investment officer in charge of strategic analysis.
He is based in London and will report to Guido Bolliger, chief investment officer.
Coiffard was previously senior portfolio manager at Altigefi, a subsidiary of Sal. Oppenheim and Deutsche Bank, where he created and managed the Altipro range of funds since 1998.
He previously founded LC & Co, which in turn created Altigefi, in which he was a major shareholder until its sale in late 2007.
Bolliger says: "I am pleased to welcome Pierre-Edouard to the investment team. His 17 years of experience in multi-manager funds and extensive expertise in alternative management strategies will contribute to Olympia’s future development and success."
