BNP Paribas Asset Management (BNPP AM) has appointed Elodie Lelief to its ETF & Indexed Fund Solutions sales team within its newly-created Multi-asset, Quantitative & Solutions (‘MAQS’) investment group, to support growing client demand.
Lelief joined on 1 December and reports to Lorraine Sereyjol-Garros, Head of ETF & Indexed Fund Solutions sales. She will focus on French-speaking clients (France, Monaco, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland). Elodie’s appointment comes against a backdrop of a sharp rise in assets under management in ETFs at BNPP AM. Assets have risen by 76 per cent in just over a year following the introduction of a new strategy by Isabelle Bourcier, who was recently promoted to Head of Quantitative & Index-based Management. As at 30 November, BNPP AM managed EUR17.4 billion in ETFs and indexed funds.
Elodie began her career at BNP Paribas CIB in 2006 as a financial analyst for key corporate accounts. In 2010, she joined the Financial Institutions Coverage team as an Associate, responsible for global coverage of institutional clients (Swiss insurance companies and private banks, and Belgian banks). Elodie has an MBA from ESC Montpellier and a BA (Hons) in Business Studies from De Monfort University.
Bourcier says: “We are very pleased to welcome Elodie Lelief to the ETF & Indexed Fund Solutions sales team. Her appointment will enable us to respond better to growing client interest in BNPP AM’s range of Easy ETFs and indexed fund solutions. Her appointment brings the number of people in our sales team to seven, and we expect this to continue to grow.”
