Paul Lambert has joined asset manager QMA Wadhwani as a client portfolio manager – he will be based in London and report to QMAW’s chief investment officer, Dr. Sushil Wadhwani, CBE.
Wadhwani Asset management was formed in late 2002 by former Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee member Wadhwani before being acquired by PGIM, and arm of Prudential Financial.
Lambert was previously at Insight Asset Management, where he was head of currency for seven years, and also held this position at UBS Asset Management before that. He has previously held senior roles including head of macro strategies at Polar Capital and head of currency at Deutsche Asset Management. Prior to Deutsche, Lambert spent two years at Citi as head of European FX strategy and six years as a currency strategist at UBS. He began his career at the Bank of England in 1990.
His appointment continues, QMA says, its plan to deepen its bench of professionals outside the US. It has also appointed Linda Martinelli into a newly created role supporting marketing efforts in Europe.
These appointments follow the recent arrival of Kishen Ganatra in September 2019, bolstering the business development team, and further developing QMA’s international platform, which commenced in 2018 with the arrival of John Gee-Grant as head of international distribution and global consultant relations.
“With over 20 years’ experience, Paul will be an invaluable addition to the team and will significantly strengthen our resources,” says Dr Wadhwani. “I am pleased to have been able to attract someone of Paul’s calibre and breadth of experience in a number of senior roles over the years. I look forward to working with him closely as we continue to grow the business.”
Lambert adds, “This is an exciting time to be joining QMAW. I look forward to working with the team as we build out our client relationships globally and bring our compelling investment solutions to new audiences, helping take QMAW to the next level.”
