Wealth and investment manager Edmond de Rothschild Group has appointed Vincent Taupin as the head of Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management with effect from 1 January 2017, alongside his existing role as president du directoire of Edmond de Rothschild France.
This follows Roderick Munsters’ decision to resign from his role as head of Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management for personal reasons. He will continue to contribute to the group by joining the board of Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France).
Munsters says: “In a short but exciting period at Edmond de Rothschild, I have been able to review and prepare a new and integrated asset management strategy. I have reluctantly taken the decision to step down and to return to the Netherlands.”
Ariane de Rothschild, chairwoman of the group executive committee, says: “I fully understand the reasons for Roderick’s decision to step down from his leadership role in Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management, and wish him all the best for the future. I have asked Vincent Taupin to assume responsibility for the asset management business alongside his existing French Private Banking role, as I believe that now is the right time to accelerate the convergence of our expertise, businesses and geographies. This is what our clients expect from a leading investment house.”
Taupin (pictured) says: “I am very much looking forward to taking on this additional responsibility, having worked closely with Roderick over the last six months.”
