The ODDO BHF group is strengthening its global thematic equity management team with the arrival of Clément Maclou as equity manager. The firm highlighted in a press release that this appointment is part of its commitment to accelerate its development by relying on the alliance with Landolt & Cie in Switzerland.
Based in Switzerland, Maclou will take charge of the Landolt Investment (Lux) SICAV - Best Selection in Food Industry strategy, the objective of which is to invest in listed global companies, active across the entire value chain within the agricultural and food industry sectors. This thematic strategy -which is registered in Belgium, Switzerland, France, Spain, Germany and Luxemburg- aims to provide its clients with direct exposure to the global structural trend of the food revolution.
Since 2016, Maclou has been responsible for the management of thematic equity funds at Decalia Asset Management in Switzerland. In 2005, he joined CPR Asset management in France as a thematic equity fund manager.
"We are seeing strong demand from our clients for thematic equity funds. Continuing to enhance our offer to give them access to promising themes is therefore a major development area for the group, to which Clément will actively contribute"; said Laurent Denize, Co-CIO of ODDO BHF Asset Management.
Meanwhile, Thierry Lombard, partner at ODDO BHF and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Banque Landolt, where he initiated the Future of Food project, pointed out that the food revolution is a vital issue for our planet and the future of young generations.
"Starting from the field to the fork, we are bringing together all the challenges that humanity must meet, among which I would like to mention: the environment, agricultural production and distribution, and health. I am therefore delighted that this expertise, reinforced by the arrival of Maclou, will complement the know-how of the ODDO BHF group", he said.
