Pictet Asset Management Expands Consultancy Team

Pictet Asset Management, the institutional asset management business of the Swiss private bank Pictet & Cie, has appointed Fawzy Salarbux as senior consultant relations manager, to be based in London.

Salarbux was latterly a senior associate at Mercer, where he was the lead consultant for a number of corporate and local government pension fund clients, the firm said in a statement. He has also worked as an investment consultant at AonHewitt.

Salarbux’s new role will involve working with key consultants globally. He reports to Simon Males, head of global consultants and chief marketing officer for the UK & Ireland.

Last month the firm appointed Anthony Cheung as a senior investment manager within its Asia total return team. Cheung joined the institutional asset management arm of the Swiss private bank Pictet & Cie from Gartmore Investment Management, where he was an investment manager in the global emerging markets team, specialising in China.

Geneva-founded Pictet & Cie had some £261 billion (£422 billion) in assets under management and custody on 31 March 2011. On the same date Pictet Asset Management managed £83.2 billion in assets.
