Pictet in senior manager hiring spree


Pictet Asset Management has hired four new investment managers, with three working on its new thematic funds.

Three of the new hires will join the thematic equities investment team, while the other will join the small cap equities team.

Cyril Benier has been appointed senior investment manager in the small cap equities team and will work with Alain Caffort on the European small cap strategy.

Benier joins from Axa Investment Managers, where he has worked for the past eight years running small cap equity strategies.

Also joining Pictet is Simon Gottelier, who has been hired as a senior investment manager for the water strategy. He comes from New York-based Impax Asset Management, where he ran a global water strategy.

Peter Lingen has also joined the thematic equities team, to work on the recently-launched robotics strategy alongside current manager Karen Kharmandarian.

Lingen joins from from Swedbank Robur and began his investment career in 1996 at Coller Capital.

Christian Roessing is the final hire for the thematic team, who will be a senior investment manager for the Clean Energy strategy.

He joins from seven years at Vontobel Asset Management, where he most recently ran the Clean Technology fund.

Richard Heelis, CIO of equities, says: “These senior hires reflect our strong commitment to thematic investing and will strengthen our existing teams.”
