Opalesque Industry Update - The Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) Association, a global not-for-profit organization dedicated to education, professionalism, and ethics in the field of alternative investments, today announced it has hired Caroline Bault as the CAIA Association's Managing Director of Global Business Development. She will be based in the London office and will work closely with Florence Lombard, CEO of the CAIA Association, to develop and execute the association's strategy for growth in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. In addition, to support growth in Asia, the CAIA Association has announced it has hired Sebastien Lacroix, who will be based in the Singapore office, and Joanne Murphy in Hong Kong. The three positions, which are all new to the association, are effective immediately.

"I warmly welcome Caroline, Sebastien, and Joanne to the CAIA Global Business Development team," said Florence Lombard, CEO of the CAIA Association. "They each bring many years of in-depth experience of the alternative investment sector throughout Europe and Asia and will play a pivotal role in developing the CAIA Association's activities in those regions. As the sponsor of the only globally recognized designation for alternative investment expertise, we are committed to making the CAIA program more accessible as professionals around the world seek greater alternative investment knowledge. These key appointments will allow us to do just that."

Bault, who earned her CAIA designation in 2009, has more than 15 years of experience heading research and sales as well as marketing. She has had assignments at Goldman Sachs and Commerzbank and most recently as a consultant focusing on fund of funds research, structuring and product development. A native of France, she is a graduate of the University of Hartford and holds an MBA from the University of California, San Diego, with concentrations in Finance/Economics. She has also served since 2007 as Chair of the Education Committee of 100 Women in Hedge Funds in London.

Sebastien Lacroix, who earned his CAIA in 2008, is the new Director of Industry Relations, Asia. He has worked in the Asian financial market for more than ten years and has substantial experience in driving marketing campaigns and expansion efforts within multimillion-dollar corporations. Over the last few years, Lacroix has worked for Protrust Asia Singapore, a Dominion Funds subsidiary, where he contributed to a significant increase in sales among institutional investors in Japan and South East Asia.

Joanne Murphy, a leader in the Asian hedge fund industry, is the CAIA Association's new Senior Advisor. Murphy has worked in Asia for 14 years, predominantly in Hong Kong. She has held a number of senior regional management positions in the sales, business development, marketing and client relationship management divisions of major institutions. As a consultant, Murphy will complement the CAIA Association's team in the Asia Pacific region.
