Fidelity International has confirmed the appointment of Romain Boscher as its new chief investment officer (CIO) for equities.
He replaces Dominic Rossi, who announced last year he is to relinquish the position and take a new role in the company focused on public policy.
Mr Boscher joins Fidelity from Amundi, where he had been head of equities for the past seven years.
Mr Boscher will report to Bart Grenier, global head of asset management, and will be a member of Fidelity International’s global operating committee. He joins on 30 April and will be located in London.
Mr Grenier said: “Romain is an investor with an exceptional track record. He has worked at a global level, running large teams and delivering exceptional performance for many years.
"Our equities franchise is a significant part of our business and we are passionate about delivering great active returns for our clients.
"I am delighted to welcome someone of such calibre into the company and I know that our equities franchise will continue to thrive and develop for the benefit of our clients under his leadership.”
