Amundi’s head of fund selection and advisory, Mai Khanh Vo, is to leave the firm later this month after nearly 20 years with the French asset manager, Citywire Selector understands.
The former Citywire Selector cover star, who has a degree in particle physics, is understood to be leaving amid changes to the fund selection proposition brought on by the merger of Amundi with Pioneer Investments.
Mai Khanh first joined the company in 1999 as a multi-asset fund manager, becoming a multi-management analyst when Amundi first made its move into this area in 2001.
After almost a decade operating within this team, Mai Khanh was then named head of fund selection and advisory in mid-2010.
Amundi’s selection efforts have undergone several changes in recent years, even beyond the Pioneer deal.
In April 2016, the company formed a new multi-asset advisory unit, which is led by Silvia Bocchiotti across four international offices and which boasts an 18-strong team.
