BNP Paribas AM merges quant and ETF investment teams

BNP Paribas, AM, merges, ETF, investment, teamsBNP Paribas Asset Management has brought together its quantitative and ETF investment teams into one systematic & quantitative investment team.

The new wing is under the leadership of Robinson Rouchié, chief investment officer, reporting to Rob Gambi, global head of investments. Rouchié, currently chief of staff to Gambi, will relinquish this role following the appointment of his successor. He will remain a member of BNPP AM’s investment committee and continue to be based in Paris.

Rouchié has worked within the BNP Paribas Group for more than a decade, including roles within investment banking, wealth management and Exane, BNPP’s cash equities subsidiary.

Gambi said Rouchié has “demonstrated strategic vision, detailed technical knowledge and a strong commercial focus.”

“He will bring a breadth of investment expertise – from securities research and quantitative analysis, through to asset allocation, and with a demonstrable track record of building strong client relationships,” he said.

In acknowledgement of the predominance of fixed income strategies within BNPP AM’s emerging markets affiliates, Olivier de Larouzière will become responsible for the investment teams within emerging markets affiliates, in addition to his current role as chief investment officer of global fixed income.

Guy Davies, deputy head of investments, will assume leadership of BNPP AM’s multi-assets and solutions teams, excluding quant and ETF, in March, in addition to his existing role as CIO for fundamental active equities.

He replaces Denis Panel, who will be leaving BNPP AM in March to take up a leadership role at boutique Sycomore Asset Management.
