RELATED TOPICS​

Boutique asset manager Unigestion has appointed Didier Anthamatten as Senior Investment Manager, and promoted Nicolas Poignant to Assistant Investment Manager, within its equity derivatives team.

Both Anthamatten and Poignant are focused on running volatility strategies, and their appointments represent the firm’s latest step to increase its capabilities in the liquid alternatives space.
 
Anthamatten joined Unigestion earlier this year, bringing with him more than a decade of experience in managing specialist derivatives strategies. He was previously Head of Equity Derivatives Trading at Pictet & Cie, having joined the company as Proprietary Trader focusing on Equity Derivatives in 2011. Prior to Pictet, Didier was an Equity Derivatives Trader at Deutsche Bank from December 2007. He started his career earlier that year in the Equity Derivatives Sales Department at Goldman Sachs. Anthamatten holds a Master’s degree in Accounting and Finance from the University of St Gallen, Switzerland, and is a Chartered Market Technician.
 
Poignant has been promoted to Assistant Investment Manager, having joined Unigestion in February 2015 as a Quantitative Analyst focusing on risk modelling and optimisation. Previously, he completed an internship in 2014 within the Quantitative team of RMA Asset Management. He holds a Double Master’s degree from SUPELEC Rennes in France and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne where he graduated in Financial Engineering.
 
Jean-François Clément, Head of Equity Derivatives, says: “Unigestion currently manages more than USD 3 billion in liquid alternatives across asset classes, with a significant portion in volatility-related strategies. We continue to increase our presence in the space to meet growing demand from investors seeking new sources of return and portfolio diversification.”
 
“These appointments significantly enhance our volatility trading expertise and allow us to further develop innovative and specialist solutions for our clients. Unigestion’s long heritage in risk-managed equity investing provides the ideal foundation to exploit the considerable opportunities that volatility has to offer in a risk-controlled way.”
