Unigestion Strengthens Cross-Asset Solutions Team with Two Manager Hires
JERSEY CITY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 24, 2018--Unigestion, the boutique asset manager with the scale to deliver tailor-made investment solutions to clients globally, has further strengthened its cross-asset solutions team with the recent appointments of Salman Baig and Joshua Seager as investment managers.
Salman joined Unigestion earlier this year from Bridgewater Associates, where he was an Investment Associate & Engineer focusing on fundamental macroeconomic research, portfolio construction and risk management. Prior to Bridgewater, he was a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the mathematics department at the University of Washington and a member of the Research Team at the Institute for Defense Analyses in the US. Salman holds a Bachelors in Mathematics and a Masters in Finance from Princeton University and a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Texas. Based in Geneva, he is working across all of Unigestion’s cross-asset portfolios, with a primary focus on its flagship Cross-Asset Navigator strategy.
Joshua joined Unigestion from EQ Investors, where he focused on asset allocation and quantitative analysis. He started his career in 2012 at Threadneedle Investments, conducting quantitative and risk analysis across cross-asset portfolios. Joshua holds a Bachelors in Mathematics from the University of Edinburgh. Based in London, he works across all Unigestion’s cross-asset offering, with a primary focus on its Alternative Risk Premia strategy.
Jerome Teiletche, Head of Cross Asset Solutions, said:
“As we move further away from a global economy fueled by quantitative easing, genuinely diversified and actively risk managed cross-asset investment strategies will have an increasing importance in an investor’s portfolio. It is against this backdrop, that we have looked to grow and bolster our team to ensure that we can continue to deliver and cater for the increasing demand for our investment solutions from clients globally.
“At Unigestion we are profound believers in a team-based approach to investment. The appointments of Salman and Joshua further strengthen the team’s expertise and skill set, thanks to their breadth of experience in macro investing, quantitative research and risk management.”

We are responsible for managing USD 24.9 bn in client assets across our four areas of expertise: equity, multi asset investing, private equity and alternatives. We believe that risk management is an enduring driver of long-term investment performance, and we therefore apply a risk lens to all our strategies.
Ideas drive our growth, and Unigestion strives to be always at the forefront of innovation in investment management. For us, innovation is about co-creating with our clients the investment solutions that meet their needs through a partnership approach.
Our tradition of research sets us apart. Unigestion’s ongoing research focus, as well as our collaboration with the world of academia, enables us to arrive at new ideas to the benefit of our clients.
With over half of our assets managed through segregated mandates, we have a proven ability to understand clients’ objectives and are trusted by them to design strategies tailored to their needs.
We are privately owned, with a majority of the equity controlled by our senior management, and we focus solely on asset management. This gives us the independence to take a long-term perspective and stay true to our convictions for the long-term benefit of clients.
This independence also means that our interests can truly be aligned with those of our clients. We demonstrate our commitment to our clients by investing our own capital in the strategies we manage for them.
