On the occasion of its annual general meeting held on Friday 16 June in Amsterdam, Sandro Pierri, CEO of BNP Paribas Asset Management, was elected as EFAMA’s President for a two-year term, running until June 2025. Sandro Pierri has been the CEO of BNP Paribas Asset Management since 2021. He has over 30 years of experience in various leadership roles within the asset management industry, including as former CEO of Pioneer Investments.
President of EFAMA, Sandro Pierri, commented:
“It is an honor to serve as EFAMA President for the next two years. In a challenging financial environment, regulation has become a key competitive component for our industry while navigating through major strategic transitions such as the retail investment strategy, sustainable finance and tech. I am deeply convinced that EFAMA has an essential role to play, to help build a true European Capital Markets Union to serve our clients and European savers but also finance the net zero transition. Our industry needs clear rules that allow fund and asset management companies to operate efficiently throughout the Union and beyond and I am truly committed to ensure the voice of our industry is heard at European and international levels.”

Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors is likely to be subject to a higher-than-average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions). Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
