BNP Paribas Asset Management (BNPP AM) has appointed Grégory Taïeb as an investment specialist within its Multi-Asset, Quantitative and Solutions investment group (MAQS).
Based in Paris and reporting to head of the investment specialists team Jean-Philippe Olivier, Taïeb will work internationally to promote BNPP AM's quantitative products, in close collaboration with the investment and sales teams.
Joining BNPP AM from Robeco in Paris, where he spent almost two years as an investment specialist focusing on quantitative management, Taïeb began his career in 2004 as a multi-asset portfolio manager at State Street. Initially based in Paris, he moved to Montreal in 2007 and London in 2010, before returning to Paris two years later as head of investment solutions.
Etienne Vincent, global head of Quantitative Management at BNPP AM, says:"Our quantitative management capability has generated strong interest from investors for several years, as demonstrated by the growth in assets under management to €12bn. The appointment of Grégory Taïeb strengthens our ability to respond to client demand for integrating our quantitative strategies into their portfolios."
