PineBridge Pushes Further Into European Market

The investment house is opening an office in Zurich.

Pinebridge Investments, the asset management house with $80.3 billion in AuM, is taking aim at the Swiss and Austrian market, opening an office in Zurich and appointing a manager to lead the operation.

The firm has appointed Alain Meyer as head of Switzerland and Austria. Meyer will oversee PineBridge’s expansion into the Swiss institutional and intermediaries market, it said in a statement late last week. 

Previously, Meyer was head of institutional sales at Aviva Investors, overseeing operations across Switzerland, Germany and Austria.

The firm is majority-owned by a subsidiary of Pacific Century Group (PCG), an Asia-based private investment group.
