BNP Paribas Investment Partners has launched a multi-asset specialist arm called FundQuest Advisor which will include funds previously managed by FundQuest.
The new launch will be headed up by Stéphane Pouchoulin and will look to offer services for manager and fund selection and model portfolios.
The funds previously managed by FundQuest have been transferred to the group’s global balanced solutions team.
FundQuest chief executive Charlotte Dennery says: “Our continued commitment to delivering best-in-class investment strategies and services for our clients has led to the creation of FundQuest Advisor.
“Therefore, we leverage the international and long-established brand recognition of FundQuest in the advisory services field. “
Pouchoulin joined FundQuest in 2009 as head of strategic development, having started as a broker at BNP Paribas Equities in 2001.
