Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management’s head of emerging market equities, Ludovic Vauthier, has left the firm.

Vauthier has exited after 14 years with the group, during which he has managed several emerging market funds.

These included the Edmond de Rothschild Fund - Global Emerging and Edmond de Rothschild India funds. Vauthier became head of emerging market equities in July 2017.

In his stead, international equities portfolio manager and Citywire A-rated Jacques-Aurélien Marcireau will take on his remit in his new role as co-head of international equities.

Marcireau received the promotion in October 2018 amid a wider reshuffle in the group’s investment management team.

Vauthier’s departure comes soon after a raft of changes to the senior management team, which was largely triggered by Citywire + rated Pierre Nebout’s exit.

Nebout, who was formerly co-head of European equity, left the group in September 2018 after 15 years and was replaced by Marc Halperin to work as co-head alongside Philippe Lecoq.
