Lombard Odier Investment Managers and Systemiq announce holistiQ Investment Partners







  • Dedicated sustainable investment platform within Lombard Odier Investment Managers to deploy capital for a net-zero and nature-positive economy
  • holistiQ will identify and invest into critical themes of the environmental transition expected to reshape the world economy in the coming decades, generating investment performance


Lombard Odier Investment Managers (“LOIM”), the asset management arm of Swiss banking group, Lombard Odier, and Systemiq, the leading system change company, have today announced a new partnership to build holistiQ Investment Partners (“holistiQ”).1

holistiQ will operate as a new platform within LOIM solely dedicated to sustainable investing and will combine Lombard Odier’s asset management heritage, commitment to sustainability and investment track record, with Systemiq’s deep analytical understanding and expertise in economic system transformation.

Driven by clear convictions on the speed and scale of the economic transition, the platform will seek to deploy capital to capture investment opportunities, concentrating on the transformation of key economic systems such as energy; land and oceans; and materials. holistiQ will aim to offer a diversified, innovative suite of investment strategies across both public and private markets with a dedicated pillar on nature-based solutions.

Robust research and science-based forecasting of the economic transition to a more sustainable and regenerative future, and the impact this will have across sectors and geographies, should enable holistiQ to support clients to capitalise on new investment opportunities across the environmental transition to drive healthy potential returns.

holistiQ will be led jointly by Taraneh Azad, Managing Partner of Systemiq and Jean-Pascal Porcherot, Lombard Odier Managing Partner in charge of the asset management business, alongside their current roles. They will be overseeing a team of more than 100, drawn from across both LOIM and Systemiq, combining cutting-edge quantitative research with highly-skilled investment professionals.

Hubert Keller, Senior Managing Partner at Lombard Odier said: “holistiQ marks an important milestone in the history of both companies and signals the strength of our shared ambition of creating innovative solutions to drive progress in the global environmental transition. It is a unique partnership that will leverage the distinct, yet simultaneously interwoven capabilities of both institutions. Furthermore, it exemplifies Lombard Odier’s commitment to continuously develop leading investment solutions to meet the needs of our clients, underpinning our commitment to serving them as a leading sustainable investor focused on delivering performance. We look forward to deepening our existing relationship with Systemiq through this partnership.”

Jeremy Oppenheim, Founding/Senior Partner of Systemiq, said: “To build a net positive global economy $5-6 trillion of investment capital needs to be deployed across the world every year, most of this will be private capital. Systemiq has worked with Lombard Odier for several years and we have found the perfect partner with whom to build holistiQ. Combining the best research capabilities from across the two houses, we will develop distinctive investment strategies with clear convictions based on both scientific and economic insights.”
