Paris-headquartered ‘anti-benchmark’ asset manager Tobam has appointed Frédéric Jamet as head of Trading and co-head of Research. He will also be a managing director of the firm.
As head of Trading, Jamet will oversee all trading activities within Tobam’s equities, fixed income, forex and multi-asset strategies. His role of co-head of Research will consist of supporting the boutique’s sustained efforts to develop its maximum diversification approach’s theoretical foundations. In addition, he will supervise research development for the firm’s operational and portfolio management divisions.
Based in Paris, Jamet manages Tobam’s team across Paris and Dublin where the firm opened an office earlier this year.
Prior to joining Tobam, Jamet served as head of Investments at State Street Global Advisors France during 11 years.
Formerly, Jamet was head of the Index Equity unit for State Street, creating and managing a range of index funds and ETFs.
Prior to his tenure at State Street, Jamet had held a number of positions including head of Derivative Research at HSBC, and before, new quantitative products at Credit Lyonnais.
Tobam’s president Yves Choueifaty (pictured) said: “We are committed to always improve our product range as well pursue innovative thinking in every new product we create. Frédéric’s personal involvement and extensive experience in the field of factor investing and smart beta innovation will no doubt make him a key contributor to this effort.”
Tobam has $8.5bn (€7.1bn) of assets under management.
