May 30 2007 | 9:36am ET

Pioneer Investments has appointed Antoine Josserand as head of alternative investments institutional sales. In this newly-created London-based role, Josserand will lead the alternative sales effort to the institutional market and will also act as a technical specialist within the wider Pioneer Investments global distribution team. He will report to Paul Price, global head of institutional business.

Josserand joins from AXA where he was responsible for hedge fund product and business development. Prior to AXA, Josserand was an equity derivatives trader at Lehman Brothers International (Europe).

“We all know that institutional allocations to alternative investments continue to rise and I am certain that it is important to have specialist knowledge in this area in the team that interacts with our clients,” said Price. “Success and credibility comes from building effective partnerships with those clients and I am confident that Antoine’s experience in institutional sales matched with his technical knowledge of the hedge fund industry will prove invaluable as part of our global team.”
