Mediolanum Asset Management (MAML), the Irish asset management company of the Mediolanum Banking Group, has announced the appointment of Christophe Jaubert as its new Head of Investment Performance.
Christophe has more than 24 years of investment management experience at major wealth managers. He joins from Rothschild HDF Investment Solutions in Paris where he served as the Managing Director, Chief Investment Officer and Head of Research. Prior to this, Christophe worked as Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer for HDF Finance, with responsibility across Paris, New York, Singapore and Geneva.
Based in Dublin, Christophe oversees MAML’s expanding investment team, with responsibility for the firm’s investment performance and overarching process.
Christophe will contribute to the evolution of the firm’s investment process (Med3), which uses both fundamental and technical analysis to identify investment opportunities represented by changes in the prices of assets and instruments as well as the inefficient pricing of markets risks.
A key part of Christophe’s role is also to manage Mediolanum’s multi-manager portfolios encompassing equity, fixed income and alternative strategies.
Christophe chairs the firm’s Investment Committee and works closely with the Portfolio Management and Strategy and Research teams, to integrate tactical and strategic “house views” with the very best third-party fund managers selected by the fast-growing manager research team.
Furio Pietribiasi, Managing Director at Mediolanum Asset Management Limited commented: “We are delighted to have Christophe onboard. He brings his manager selection experience and philosophy to complement MAML’s asset allocation approach to pursue performance excellence. His investment and business perspectives will enable the continued growth and development of our pool of investment talent. His background and experience in the wealth management industry is a perfect fit for us, as we seek to continue to deliver outstanding service and investment excellence for our clients.
Furio Pietribiasi added: “Our objective is to continue to expand our range of products and strategies by building and acquiring new capabilities. Christophe’s experience of working across multiple asset classes and strategies, notably in the alternatives space, also makes him ideally placed to guide our investment team in identifying outstanding and innovative investment solutions for investors.”
