The Amundi Group is entering into a new phase: as of 30 September 2015, all its thematic equities expertise and development capabilities will be pooled within CPR AM, thus creating a specialised unit to establish the company as market leader within the next years.....
The management capabilities will therefore become the responsibility of CPR AM. The new thematic equities division, under the leadership of Vafa Ahmadi, appointed Head of Thematic Equities and Estelle Ménard, appointed as his deputy, will be entrusted with more than 3.6 billion euros in assets under management.
The team boasts 10 investment professionals, who, with the support of all of CPR AM’s teams, will be in charge of sustaining and developing the Group’s existing and future thematic expertise.
“As a major player in asset management, our role has never been as important as it is today. We must mobilise all our means and resources in order to offer our clients a range of solutions that are as innovative as they are high-performing and robust. CPR AM’s success in this domain will help to bolster our position in thematic management” affirms Romain Boscher, Amundi’s Global Head of Equities.
