Edouard Merette appointed chairman of Unigestion Asia


Unigestion has appointed Edouard Merette as non-executive chairman of the board of Unigestion Asia.

Based in Singapore, Merette will lead the firm’s strategy for growth in the region, working with the whole of Unigestion’s senior management team.
Merette was previously managing director, Asia Pacific for the Caisse de Depot et Placement du Quebec, one of Canada’s largest fund managers and has over 25 years of corporate management experience in Canada, Europe and Asia Pacific.
His track record of building and leading businesses in the professional services sector include seven years as chief executive for Aon Hewitt, Asia Pacific and six years as a member of Mercer’s global executive committee, the last year of which he was president, Asia Pacific.
Merette replaces Bill Foo, who served as chairman for five years, but who remains a member of the board.
Bernard Sabrier, group chairman of Unigestion, says: “We are thrilled that Edouard is joining our global family. With our increasing presence in Asia since establishing our office in Singapore in 2007, we see the region as one of long term growth for Unigestion. Edouard’s profile and experience globally, together with his knowledge of the Asian financial markets will help us establish strong relationships with Asian investors.” 
Merette says: “Unigestion has a compelling proposition for Asian investors, who value sound investment principles based on tailored, risk managed exposure across diversified asset classes. For me, Unigestion is an ideal fit given its global footprint and outlook. I very much look forward to working with my new colleagues to build on Unigestion’s success both in the region and globally.”
