Amundi appoints sole head of European small- and midcap equities

Cristina Matti was named sole head of European small- and midcap equities and country strategies at Amundi, a spokesman said.

Ms. Matti had been co-head of European small- and midcap equities and country strategies since July 2017 alongside Caroline Gauthier. The spokesman declined to provide reason for Ms. Gauthier's departure or her next move.

Ms. Matti continues to oversee portfolio management for pan-European funds and mandates, Amundi's "euroland" small- and midcap funds range and mandates and microcap and country strategies. She reports to Diego Franzin, head of the equity investment platform.

Amundi has €1.43 trillion ($1.77 trillion) in assets under management following the acquisition of Pioneer Investments in June 2017. Prior to the Amundi-Pioneer tie-up, Ms. Matti had been head of European small and midcaps for Pioneer since June 2001, and head of country strategies since 2007.
