Pictet AM thematic equities managers exit amid reshuffle

Two thematic equity managers, Citywire AAA-rated Nolan Hoffmeyer and Arnaud Bisschop, have exited Pictet AM amid a wider reshuffle of the team.

Hoffmeyer managed the Pictet-Digital fund, having joined the company in 2012.

Alice de Lamaze will replace Lecamp as manager of the Pictet-Nutrition fund. She previously managed the Pictet-Premium Brands fund.

New recruits

Despite losing two key managers, the thematics team is prepared to bring Olivier Djopwouo and Stanislas Effront into the team. The pair will join the Pictet-Digital fund, and Louis Veilleux and Peter Lawrence will be added to the Pictet-Water team.

Djopwouo started his career at Pictet in 2013 as a senior analyst for long-short investment strategies. He previously worked at HSBC and Capital Group.

Veilleux previously worked as a senior investment manager for Pictet Asset Management and as a financial analyst for Pictet Wealth Management.

Lawrence joined the firm in 2015 and has been a part of the Pictet-Nutrition team since 2017.

The firm confirmed in a statement that the investment philosophies guiding these funds will remain the same.
