SocGen Adds Hedge Fund Relations Chief In Asia

Jul 18 2008 | 10:55am ET

Société Générale has named a prime brokerage specialist from one of its joint ventures to head up hedge fund relations in Asia.

Gregoire Dechy is charged with developing new, and maintaining existing, hedge fund relationships in the newly-created post of head of hedge fund relations for Asia-Pacific.

“This is a key business for us,” Dechy said. “We are really pushing towards that direction. Our key strength is in New York and London, and in Asia we are at an infancy stage.”

Dechy will be based in Hong Kong. Most recently, he has worked on the development of the prime brokerage platform at Newedge, a jointly-owned subsidiary of SocGen and Calyon.
