Lazard Asset Management is aiming to grow its Emerging Market and Global Multi Asset solution platform with appointment of Rupert Hope as a director and portfolio manager.
Lazard's multi asset investment team head, Jai Jacob, said Hope would bring decades' worth of experience to the firm, after leaving his position as a managing director and co-head of Global Distribution at Renaissance Capital, where he built a global emerging markets platform.
"Rupert has the specific set of skills needed to translate client needs into investment objectives and active allocation decisions," Jacob said.
"His expertise in, and perspective on emerging markets will help us continue to deliver comprehensive client solutions."
Prior to his time at Renaissance, Hope was at Deutsche Bank, where he served as a managing director and leg various emerging markets equity teams.
