About Edouard Carmignac
Edouard Carmignac roots his investment decisions in the sophisticated top-down investment philosophy he devised when he set up investment boutique Carmignac Gestion in 1989. In essence, Carmignac defines the geographical areas with the highest potential and then zooms in on the most buoyant sectors. Born in 1947, and a keen polo player, Carmignac graduated in Economics from Paris University. Prior to Carmignac Gestion he had spells with Blyth Eastman Dillon in New York and Banque Paribas in Paris. In 1984 he joined stockbrokers Hamant & Cie and subsequently played an instrumental role in the creation of the firm's fund management subsidiary, Pyramide Gestion.
