SWITZERLAND- The Swiss Social Security Compensation Pension Fund AHV has hired Bettina Viedma of Credit Lyonnais Securities as its new investment controller.

Viedma has taken over Phillippe Kuttler, who left the fund to join Citigroup Asset Management and lead business development in the Swiss market, as reported by IPE this week.

She specialises in equities and equity-related mandates and will do “Kuttler’s job and a little more”, Eric Breval, managing director of the AHV’s Fonds de Compensation, told IPE.

Before joining the AHV, Viedma used to have a senior position at Credit Lyonnais Securities in Geneva.
