Pemberton, the diversified credit asset manager backed by one of Europe's largest insurers, Legal & General Group PLC, announces the expansion of its senior management team with the appointment of Antoine Josserand as Head of Business Development.
Antoine will join as a Partner and will oversee Pemberton's Business Development and Investor Services functions. In this newly created role, he will be responsible for the development of the firm's institutional client base across Asia, EMEA and the Americas. Pemberton has expanded its institutional investor base significantly over the past three and a half years, and includes leading insurance companies, foundations, endowments, pension funds and family offices from the UK, Europe, United States, Canada, Japan and Asia Pacific.
Antoine brings over 20 years of relevant industry experience, most recently from Citigroup where he was Head of International Fund Distribution for EMEA. Prior to joining Citigroup, Antoine was at Pioneer Alternative Investments and AXA Investment Managers, where he developed strong knowledge of traditional and alternative asset classes, and a deep understanding of investor portfolio needs and asset allocation.
Symon Drake-Brockman, Managing Partner of Pemberton, said: “We are continuing to see growing appetite from institutional investors for our strategies and we are committed to developing long-term and responsive partnerships with our institutional investors. In broadening our platform, it is crucial that our business development and investor services functions develop in line with that growth.”
Antoine Josserand added: “Pemberton is at a very exciting stage, and it is attracting investors from farther afield who see the different opportunities in European credit. Pemberton’s impressive track-record in deploying capital across Europe’s private credit markets is perfectly suited to the growing demands of institutional clients. I look forward to working closely with the Pemberton team to further the firm’s growth ambitions and enhancing our existing relationships while also building new ones.”
Pemberton has also further strengthened its operational and portfolio management team with the appointment of Douglass Welch, who will be appointed as a Portfolio Conducting Officer of our Luxembourg-based AIFM.
