RobecoSAM appoints chief executive

RobecoSAM, sister company of Dutch investment management firm Robeco, has named Aris Prepoudis as chief executive officer.

As of January 1, he assumes the position from Reto Schwager, who has led the firm on an interim basis since August. Schwager will continue to serve as global head of private equity and a member of the executive committee.

A Swiss national, Prepoudis was most recently chief executive of Vescore, an asset manager specialising in sustainable and quantitative investments. Prior, he was head of institutional client business at Notenstein Privatbank, where he led the consolidation of Raiffeisen Switzerland’s asset management activities into Notenstein Asset Management.

From 2000 to 2013, he worked at Bank Sarasin & Cie AG in a range of senior positions, culminating in the role of global head of institutional clients.

Albert Gnägi, chairman of the board of directors at RobecoSAM, said Prepoudis brings an ideal set of skills to the company, an entrepreneurial mindset and a passion for sustainable investing.

Prepoudis said he looked forward to shaping the socially responsible investing landscape.

RobecoSAM manages assets of $10.8 billion (€10.1 billion), as of September 30, 2016.
