Pioneer Investments adds to multi-asset team

Pioneer Investments has added to its multi-asset investment team with the appointment of Nicholas Pothier as senior portfolio manager.

Pothier, who will be based in Dublin, will manage its multi-asset global thematic fund of funds, focusing on “significant socio-economic, technological or environmental changes that present opportunities for the long-term investor”.

He will report to head of multi-asset fund solutions John O’Toole and will co-manage the fund alongside multi-asset portfolio manager Bertrand Paquot.

O’Toole says: “We currently have a well-established multi-asset team which draws on our full range of global investment solutions.”

Pothier joins from HSBC Global Asset Management, where he held the same role, and has previously worked at Axa Investment Management.
