While, Marie-Suzanne Mazelier has been promoted from Head of Aggregate to become SCOR IP’s new Chief Investment Officer, with oversight of all portfolio management teams, including for fixed income, corporate loans, infrastructure, real estate, insurance linked securities, fund selection and sustainability.
Benjamin Ayache will remain as Chief Operating Officer and Eric Talleux as Chief Risk Officer.
In addition, the following appointments have also been made, with Thibaut Lameyse, who was previously Strategic Investments Manager for SCOR Global Investments, now appointed as General Secretary of SCOR IP, reporting to Fabrice Rossary.
Alexandre Stoessel, who was previously the Head of High Yield, will become the Head of Fixed Income, reporting to Marie-Suzanne Mazelier.
Sophie Duclos-Grenet, formerly the Head of Legal, Loans, will take on the role of Head of Fund Selection, reporting to Marie-Suzanne Mazelier.
François de Varenne, member of the SCOR SE Executive Committee, commented on the changes, “These appointments, all internal promotions, bear witness to the deep talent pool we have assembled at SCOR IP. Since its inception in 2008, we have developed a successful business model combining the management of SCOR’s investment portfolio and investment strategies open to third-party investors, leveraging on our ambition to finance the sustainable development of societies together. I have every confidence in Fabrice and the new leadership team to accelerate the development of SCOR IP’s asset management franchise while ensuring management continuity.”
