French asset manager Amundi has hired a long-standing senior manager of Société Générale as deputy CIO.

Vincent Mortier, most recently CFO of the global banking and investor solutions division at the bank, has been named deputy CIO and will join the manager’s executive committee.

The position will see him work closely with Pascal Blanqué, current CIO and head of institutional clients, who replaced then-CIO Pascal Voisin in 2005 at Crédit Agricole Asset Management, which was eventually subsumed into Amundi. 

Mortier has worked at Société Générale, which owns a minority stake in Amundi, since 1996.

In his time, he has been co-head of equity finance, deputy head of equity finance and head of strategy and development in the global equities and derivatives solutions department.

Amundi is among the largest asset managers in Europe, and ranked 10th in IPE’s Top 400 Asset Managers 2015.

At the end of 2014, it reported assets of €865bn, with external European institutional clients worth €261bn.
