Alfi appoints new director of legal and tax

The Association of the Luxembourg Fund Industry (Alfi) has appointed Emmanuel Gutton as its new director of legal and tax with immediate effect.

Gutton has taken over these responsibilities from Marc-André Bechet who has been elected deputy director general and will now oversee communications, events and business development at Alfi.

Commenting, Alfi director general, Camille Thommes, said: “Emmanuel has a strong legal background and extensive experience of the investment fund industry. He also benefits from having spent three years working for Elvinger Hoss in Hong Kong.”

Gutton was head of legal and conducting officer at Pictet Asset Management (Europe) S. A., a Luxembourg UCITS management company and AIFM, from 2016. Prior to joining Pictet, he worked for more than 10 years as a lawyer (Luxembourg Bar and Paris Bar), concentrating his practice on collective investment funds and management companies.

He worked as counsel at Elvinger Hoss and in September 2012 relocated to Hong Kong to launch Elvinger Hoss’ office there, returning to Luxembourg in September 2015. Previously, Gutton has worked as a lawyer at Linklaters in Luxembourg and De Pardieu Brocas Maffei in Paris.

He holds a master’s degree in Law from the University Paris II Panthéon-Assas (France) and a master’s degree in International Business Law and Management from the Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales (HEC), Paris in partnership with the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Paris (ESCP).
