Lombard Odier Investment Managers today (7 February)  named Aude Dhuivonroux as head of LOIM in France, as the firm continues its strategic growth plan to further increase market share in France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Monaco.

Aude joined LOIM in January 2022 from Allianz Global Investors, where she was a Director in charge of business development for France and Belgium from 2019 to 2021.

Prior to that, she spent eight years at Oyster Funds as sales director for France and Monaco and seven years at Société Générale Asset Management in charge of French institutional insurers within the sales team. Aude’s recent role at LOIM was director of Wholesale Distribution.

In her new role as Head of LOIM in France, Aude will oversee client service and business development across the entire wholesale and institutional client segments in these markets. She replaces Frédéric Cruzel, who has retired after 12 years at the firm.

Based in Paris, Aude reports to Jasbir Nizar, UK CEO and global head of business development at LOIM.

Nizar said: "Aude strongly embodies LOIM’s core values and has helped the firm to build a solid network of partners across French-speaking markets. With Aude at the helm of LOIM in France, we look forward to achieving our ambitious targets to further increase market share and drive strategic growth development forward.”
