Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management has hired Arnaud de Servigny from Barclays Wealth.
de Servigny assumes the newly created role managing director, head of investment strategy and implementation. In this position he will oversee research, strategy and portfolio construction and consulting.
de Servigny was global head of research and strategy at Barclays Wealth where he created the investment philosophy for individual portfolio risk management. He is also the author of a number of financial books including Measuring and Managing Credit Risk and Behavioural Investment Management.
He will be based in London and report to the firm's head of global investor solutions Kevin Lecocq. 'We are delighted Arnaud will join Deutsche Bank to improve our translation of research into individual portfolios, tailored to their specific requirements. His work in this area has been truly ground-breaking,' Lecocq said on the hire.
Securing the service of de Servigny represents something of a coup for Deutsche PWM. The firm suffered a spate of departures recently after several managers opted to leave after their three-year lock-ins expired.
