Amundi writes that in an increasing complex and changing world, investors have expressed a critical need to better understand their environment and the evolution of investment practices in order to define their asset allocation and help construct their portfolios. 

The firm says that this environment includes economic, financial, geopolitical, societal and environmental dimensions, and that to meet this need, Amundi has created the Amundi Institute.

Amundi writes that the Amundi Institute’s objective is to strengthen the advice, training and day-to-day dialogue on these subjects for all its clients – distributors, institutions and corporates – regardless of the assets that Amundi manages on their behalf. This new division brings together its research, market strategy and asset allocation advisory activities under the Amundi Institute.

The Amundi Institute will also be responsible for conveying Amundi’s convictions and its investment and portfolio construction recommendations, thereby furthering its leadership in these areas, the firm says.

This new business line will continue to serve Amundi’s investment management teams, the firm says and will contribute to strengthening their standards of excellence. Amundi manages over EUR2 trillion in assets, ranging from active management (listed and unlisted) to passive management, including money market and alternative investment management.

With an initial staff of around 60, the Amundi Institute will soon be strengthened to serve these new objectives. Pascal Blanqué, who has been appointed as Chairman of Amundi Institute, will supervise this new business line.
He will be supported by Monica Defend, who will be Head of Amundi Institute. Vincent Mortier will succeed Pascal as Amundi’s Group Chief Investment Officer. Matteo Germano, Head of Multi-Asset Investment, will be Deputy Chief Investment Officer.

Pascal Blanqué, Chairman of Amundi Institute and Member of Amundi’s Executive Committee, says: “Inflation, environmental issues, geopolitical tensions… there are many structural regime changes underway. Investors across the board expect a deeper dialogue and sophisticated advice to build more robust portfolios”.

Vincent Mortier, Chief Investment Officer at Amundi, says: “The creation of the Amundi Institute will enhance the contribution of research to all of Amundi’s asset management activities so that they can continue to create high-performing investment solutions over the long term, adapted to the specific needs of each client and taking into account all the parameters of an increasingly complex environment.”
