Anne-Marie de Weck to retire as Managing Partner after 20 years at the Firm

Nominations provide solid base for the continuity and further build-up of the Lombard Odier Group

Continued commitment to unique and differentiated partnership model – where partners act as owners of the Firm, managers of the Group and are personally involved with client servicing

New Partners will join the existing team to further drive the Group’s ongoing development across wealth management, asset management and technology solutions.

The Lombard Odier Group announces the appointment of Annika Falkengren and Denis Pittet as new Managing Partners.

“These two nominations provide a solid base for the further build-up of the Lombard Odier Group” said Patrick Odier, Senior Managing Partner of the Lombard Odier Group. “We are particularly pleased to welcome two highly complementary personalities with Annika Falkengren, who brings a recognised expertise in the running of a respected and successful European financial institution, and Denis Pittet, who has contributed significantly to the strategic development of the bank over the past 20 years. These two appointments represent a strong endorsement of our strategy, differentiated business model and long term vision.”

AF.580.jpgAnnika Falkengren, currently President and CEO of Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken (SEB), will join the Lombard Odier Group in July 2017 as a Managing Partner based in Geneva. Annika Falkengren joined SEB in 1987 and made a long and distinguished career which culminated in her nomination as President and CEO of SEB in 2005. Recognised as one of Europe's most respected bankers, she is also Chairman of the Swedish Bankers Association.

“I am very honoured to join a Group with strong family values and with a truly international mindset and outlook”, said Annika Falkengren. “I firmly believe in the partnership model which has been underpinning Lombard Odier’s evolution over the 221 years of its history.”

DPT.jpgDenis Pittet will become a Managing Partner in January 2017. Denis Pittet joined the Group in 1993 as a trained lawyer. He was Group Legal Counsel, before joining the Private Clients Unit in 2015 where he took over the responsibility for the independent asset managers’ department and led the expansion of wealth planning services in the areas of family governance and philanthropy. He became a Group Limited Partner in 2007. He is also Chairman of the Fondation Philanthropia, an umbrella foundation supporting clients’ long-term philanthropic projects.

“My objective will be to maintain a first class client experience at Lombard Odier”, added Denis Pittet. “We are solely dedicated to clients in a model which puts independence at the heart of everything we do.”

After 20 years of commitment to the Group, Managing Partner Anne-Marie de Weck retired on 31 December 2016. She joined Lombard Odier in 1997 to take over responsibility for the Firm’s legal department, and subsequently its Private Clients activity. A Managing Partner since 2002, Anne-Marie de Weck has made decisive contributions to the strategic development of the firm’s private client business.

“We would like to express our sincere thanks to Anne-Marie de Weck for her relentless commitment to serving our clients. We are also very grateful that she will maintain a close relationship with the Group as a member of the Board of Directors of our Swiss-based bank. In this role, she will continue to be involved in defining the strategic orientation and overseeing the operational activities of the business”, said Patrick Odier.

In July 2017, the Management Partnership of the Lombard Odier Group will be composed of Patrick Odier (Senior Partner), Christophe Hentsch, Hubert Keller, Frédéric Rochat, Hugo Bänziger, Denis Pittet and Annika Falkengren.
