Lombard Odier Investment Managers continues to expand its Global Equities franchise with two senior Portfolio Manager hires

June Chua joins in Hong Kong; Arnaud d’Aligny joins in Geneva.

Lombard Odier Investment Managers (“LOIM”) today announces the appointments of two senior Portfolio Managers to its Global Equities franchise. The appointments mark the latest in a series of strategic hires to grow and further strengthen the global equities platform, which recently surpassed the milestone of USD 12 billion in assets under management (“AuM”).


June Chua joins LOIM as a Portfolio Manager in the Asian / Emerging Markets (“Asian / EM”) Equities team. June brings a deep expertise in Asian markets, most recently from her role at Harvest Global, where she was Head of Asian Equities. June joins on 3 June and is based in Hong Kong.

In her new role, June will co-run LOIM’s Asian / EM Equities franchise with Odile Lange-Broussy. Together they oversee the USD 2 billion AuM platform across three core strategies; EM High Conviction, Asia High Conviction and China High Conviction.  June will have specific co-lead PM responsibility for the Asia High Conviction and EM High Conviction strategies, which are both enjoying strong performance.


Arnaud d’Aligny joins LOIM as a Portfolio Manager for European Equities. He brings extensive experience as a sustainable equity portfolio manager, having previously served as Partner and Lead Portfolio Manager of sustainability-focused strategies investing in all-cap European equities at Sycomore Asset Management. Arnaud joined on 3 May and is based in Geneva.

At LOIM, Arnaud will oversee the strategy for European Equities, managed from Geneva. He will work closely with Johan Utterman and his team to drive forward the pan-European and Swiss Equities franchises, which together constitute around USD 3.7 billion in AuM.


Didier Rabattu holds overall responsibility for LOIM’s Global Equities business.

Didier Rabattu, Global Head of Equities at LOIM, said: “Our global equities franchise is built upon solid foundations; a strong regional focus on Switzerland, Europe and Asia, and continued growth in thematics and sustainability. We are delighted to welcome June and Arnaud to LOIM. They bring invaluable expertise in managing sustainably-orientated strategies across key markets and we look forward to their contribution.

These appointments reinforce our commitment to be a leading global equity house and provide investors with differentiated high-conviction strategies that seek to deliver strong performance and help accelerate the transition to a more sustainable economy.”
