LAM hires Léopold Arminjon as European Long/Short equity portfolio manager


Lazard Asset Management (LAM) has appointed Léopold Arminjon as a portfolio manager/analyst. Based in London, Arminjon will be responsible for running a new European long/short equity strategy to be launched later this year.

“Léopold brings with him over 18 years of investment experience in European equities, which will benefit both our clients and our investment platform,” says Bill Smith, CEO of Lazard Asset Management London.  “This new strategy will complement our strong European equity capabilities and will broaden our already robust expertise in long/short equities, a core focus of our investment offerings for clients.”

As of 31 March 2015, LAM has USD180 billion of assets under management, including USD7.6 billion globally across a number of alternative investment strategies, investing in global long/short equity, emerging market debt and hedged credit strategies.

Prior to joining LAM, Arminjon was a lead portfolio manager at Henderson Global Investors for both the Henderson Horizon Pan-European Alpha Fund and the Alphagen Tucana Fund. Previously, he was a senior analyst at Gartmore as well as being one of the five members of the Continental Europe equities team running both long-only and long/short funds.
LAM offers a range of equity, fixed-income, and alternative investment products worldwide. As of 31 March 2015, LAM and affiliated asset management companies in the Lazard Group manage USD199 billion of client assets.
