A natural transition
Fundamental Equity: Succession
Friday, September 25, 2020 — DPAM announces the succession of its Chief Investment Officer (CIO) Fundamental Equity. As part of this natural transition, Guy Lerminiaux will officially hand over the reins of DPAM's fundamental equity expertise to his successor and long-time colleague, Alexander Roose. Guy’s role as lead manager of the European and Eurozone Equity strategies will pass on to his co-manager Koen Bosquet, CFA.
After more than 30 years in the industry, Guy will trade in the world of investment management and enjoy the well- deserved fruits of his labour.
Guy started his financial career as an analyst in 1986, and joined the company's Institutional Sales department in 1993. Guy's commitment, vision, and unwavering dedication did not go unnoticed, and he became a partner and CIO Fundamental Equity in 1998. An industry veteran at DPAM, Guy has presided over countless accomplishments, and fostered a unique investment culture within the company.
Guy and Alexander have been working closely together as expert stock pickers, significantly contributing to the success of DPAM’s equity strategies. Alexander brings with him a track record of outstanding management and an extensive understanding of fundamental equity. He is fully prepared to take on this new responsibility as CIO fundamental equity, and integrate his knowledge as the previous Head of International and Sustainable Equity into his new role.
The handover of the European and Eurozone Equity strategies has also been in the works for several years. Koen, who was hired into the team by Guy nearly six years ago, has gradually taken over the role of lead manager. Like Guy, he will benefit from the strategies’ team-based approach, and its disciplined adherence to the long-standing investment process. As a result, the investment process of the European and Eurozone Equity strategies will remain fully in line with the team’s long-term vision. Adrien Tamagno,CFA, will keep working as a fund manager alongside Koen. Muriel Mosango Bayeli completes the team of three. Considering the importance of research-driven stock picking in our funds, Adrien and Muriel’s background as buy-side analysts at DPAM will prove to be of significant value.
Hugo Lasat, DPAM CEO, thanks Guy for his many years at the company: “We owe Guy a great debt of gratitude that can only be repaid by preserving his legacy and maintaining his standard of excellence. He has made a lasting impact, which will guide DPAM’s investment philosophy for years to come.”
