London-headquartered Pacific Investments has hired former HSBC multi-asset portfolio manager Will Bartleet and Deutsche Bank’s former global head of risk factors Louis Cucciniello to help build up its newly formed multi-asset business Pacific Asset Management (PAM).
Bartleet joins PAM as chief investment officer and portfolio manager of Pacific’s range of multi-asset funds and Cucciniello joins as head of Diversifying Assets and Alternative Factor Investing.
They will work alongside PAM’s CEO Matthew Lamb who joined Pacific last month from Deutsche Asset Management, where he was global head of liquid alternatives.
Lamb said: “I was very excited when Will and Louis agreed to come on board. They are both at the top of their game and will make an excellent addition to the team as we look to build on the outstanding track record of the Pacific Investments group and establish PAM as a recognised provider of liquid multi-asset vehicles to both the retail and institutional markets.”
