IQ-EQ names Regional Chief Risk Officer for Continental Europe

14 Sep 2023

IQ-EQ is pleased to announce the appointment of Romain Riegert as our new Regional Chief Risk Officer for Continental Europe. This is a newly created position for the Group and will add to Romain’s existing responsibilities as Company Secretary of IQ-EQ France.

Romain boasts an impressive career spanning over two decades, predominantly in asset management and structured finance. His expertise was honed during his tenure at AXA Investment Managers, where he held various pivotal roles including Chief Operating Officer and Global Head of Data Management in both Japan and France.

He joined IQ-EQ in 2021 as the Head of Fund Management in France, where he successfully led our Alternative Investment Fund Management (AIFM) business and Paris-based teams. His outstanding contributions soon led to his appointment as Company Secretary Director in France, where he demonstrated his expertise in corporate governance and compliance matters.

In his expanded role, Romain will play an important part in reinforcing IQ-EQ’s global risk, compliance and governance infrastructure within Continental Europe.

Diana Senanayake, Regional CEO of Continental Europe, expressed her enthusiasm for this appointment, saying: “We are delighted to welcome Romain Riegert into his expanded role as the Regional Chief Risk Officer for Continental Europe. His exceptional leadership and extensive experience uniquely position him to strengthen our regional risk management and compliance capability. Romain’s dedication to upholding the highest standards of integrity aligns perfectly with our organisational values.”

Sally Alayarian, our Group Chief Risk Officer, added: “Romain’s background and expertise makes him ideally suited to help safeguard our Continental Europe operations in terms of risk management and compliance oversight while maintaining a culture of integrity and ethical conduct across our European offices. I look forward to working closely with him as he supports our broader Group Risk and Compliance agenda.”

Working with IQ-EQ has been seamless – you and your team understand our business, advise us appropriately, and handle your side of our collective partnership so that we can focus on making good investment decisions. Evan Gibson SVP, Merchants Capital
