Bruno Crastes

A mathematics graduate from the University of Lyon, and a qualified actuary, Bruno Crastes started his career in finance as a proprietary trader on the global bond markets for Banque Louis Dreyfus in 1988. He began managing global fixed income portfolios at Crédit Agricole Asset Management in 1990 and his quick rise through the ranks at the company saw him appointed head of international fixed income in 1997 following the merger between Indosuez Asset Management and Segespar, the predecessor of CA Asset Management. Crastes was made CIO and deputy CEO of CAAM’s London operation in November 2002. In 2010 he set up H2O Asset Management alongside Vincent Chailley.


The fund seeks to outperform its reference index (JP Morgan Government Bond Index Broad) by 1.6% p.a. over a 3 years recommended investment period. To achieve the objective, the fund implements a highly responsive management strategy in an international universe that is as broad and deep as possible on all bon markets (government and private issuers), but also on currencies.
