PineBridge names Alain Meyer to head up new Swiss, Austria ops

PineBridge Investments, the globally-focused, New York-based multi-asset class investment manager, has named Alain Meyer to head up its new Swiss and Austrian operations.

The position is a new one. Although PineBridge currently has offices in 17 countries, as yet it has none in Switzerland or Austria, although a Zurich office, where Meyer is to be based, is scheduled to open later this year.

Meyer joins PineBridge from Aviva Investors, where he was head of institutional sales.

At PineBridge, he will oversee the company’s continuing expansion into the Swiss institutional and intermediaries’ market, as well as the opening of the Zurich office and eventually, one in Austria as well.

PineBridge evolved out of American International Group’s asset management arm, the majority share of which was acquired by Asia-based Pacific Century Group in 2010. Today it manages some US$80.3bn for a global client base that includes institutions, insurance companies and intermediaries.
