Pictet Asset Management Recruits Former UBS Man

Pictet Asset Management, part of Switzerland’s Pictet & Cie, has appointed former UBS executive Tony Andersson as an investment manager in its sector and theme equities team, based in Geneva.

While at UBS, Andersson spent six years out of his nine-year tenure covering global technology and telecoms stocks.

In other recent developments, last month Pictet Asset Management appointed Mathias Leijon as a senior investment manager within its Zurich-based European equities team. Leijon previously worked at Cheuvreux (Credit Agricole Group), covering the Nordic region.

Pictet & Cie has some £270 billion (around $375 billion) in assets under management and custody, as at 30 June 2011. Its asset management arm currently oversees around £86 billion of assets in bond and equity markets.
