His joining us on Carmignac Patrimoine will allow us to consolidate synergies within the Patrimoine range, across global and European markets.
"This evolution reflects our willingness to provide our clients with the best flexibility, portfolio construction and risk management, key attributes of the Patrimoine range. The three of us are looking forward to continuing momentum of our flagship fund, Carmignac Patrimoine, which has been proving its relevance to long-term investors for over 30 years."
Together with Ouahba, Older, Edouard Carmignac, Frédéric Leroux, Didier Saint-Georges, Ney joins the Strategic Investment Committee, responsible for producing market convictions based on macro and micro-economic research across asset classes to support fund managers.
