Ex-BCM co-CEO Brignone to head new funds arm at Pactum


Pactum Advisers, the debt-focused financial services boutique founded two years ago by ex-Lehman Brothers European co-CEO Riccardo Banchetti, is expanding into asset management with the formation of Pactum Asset Management.

The CEO of the new entity will be Andrea Brignone, formerly co-CEO of BCM & Partners – the boutique investment manager and family office that was set up in 2005.

Brignone brings to the new venture several managed accounts and the equity fund management business of BCM – including two funds as well as fund managers Konstantin von Knieriem and Simon Wainwright – and COO, Peter Howlett.
