Citywire + rated Lucile Combe has quit Paris-based boutique Cogefi following a 13 year stint at the company, Citywire Selector has learned.
Combe, who joined the company in 2003, will leave the asset management company on July 9 to further explore her career.
During her tenure, Combe had managed the Cogefi Equilibre fund, which she had overseen since its launch in 2003, and had also managed the Cogefi Rendement fund, which had been in operation since 2008.
She initially joined the firm as Ucits manager/head of diversified management following a four-year stint at Copagest Finance. Announcing her departure, Combe thanked investors and said she wanted to give a new ‘impetus’ to her career.
Following her departure, the French company said the €32.31 million Cogefi Equilibre fund will be managed by Anne D’Anselme, who has worked as a Ucits manager for Cogefi for four years.
Meanwhile, the €66.5 million Cogefi Redement fund will be run by Maxime Chemouny, who has worked at Congefi for over six years.
Combe was previously featured by Citywire Selector as one of the most consistent Euro bond managers over the five years to the end of 2014.
