LPA, the capital markets technology and advisory firm, today announced the hire of Christophe Bossi as the new Sales Manager for the Asset Management sector for France and Benelux.
In his role, Christophe will continue the growth of the French branch of LPA and be responsible for the firm’s business development within the asset management sector in the region. He will work to help LPA’s clients transform and digitise their activity, maximising productivity and ensuring regulatory compliance.
Christophe has more than 25 years of experience in financial services, both in Paris and London, and with major companies such as CDC, Deutsche Bank, Bloomberg, SIX Financial, and fintechs including Investis, and FE fundinfo.
Christophe started his career spending several years in investment banking, mainly at Deutsche Bank. Over the span of his career, he helped build the first newswire in Europe for financial news releases. Christophe also worked at data vendors SIX Financial and Bloomberg, where he successfully promoted their services to large banks in France and Europe.
He entered the fund industry more than 10 years ago, launching the first data and document dissemination service in France dedicated to fund houses. This later merged with fundinfo to become the leading service provider to asset managers in Europe.
Christophe will combine his business development skills and knowledge of the asset management sector in France and Benelux to strengthen LPA’s presence in the region.
Peter Schurau, CEO of LPA, commented: “LPA has been driving digitalisation in the banking and asset management sectors for over 20 years. It’s important that we expand our presence in France. Christophe’s vast expertise and knowledge of the French financial services market will tremendously help to unlock our potential in the region and deliver LPA’s technology and advisory solutions to our clients across the country.”
Commenting on his appointment, Christophe Bossi said: “Asset managers are facing immense pressure from regulators and need to modernise in order to stay competitive. Asset managers need to partner with technology vendors like LPA that don’t only have best-in-class software, but also the industry know-how to help them navigate an increasingly complex landscape. LPA’s solutions in software, new technologies and consulting present a fantastic opportunity in France and Benelux for asset managers. I look forward to helping the company expand its asset management client base in this region.”
