Nicolas Descoqs

Analyst, Fund manager
Joined Clartan Associés in 2021

I began my career in the energy industry in 2005 where I worked as a young engineer for the American ConocoPhillips. After several assignments in different countries (Norway, China, and the United States), I switched into market finance in 2014 and joined Alken Asset Management in London as an equities analyst. In 2021, it seemed only natural to join Clartan because I am convinced by the company’s values and business model: a collegiate investment management team specialising in long-term, socially-responsible investment. The stability of the Clartan management team and investment philosophy seem to be major strengths for growing our clients’ capital over the long term.
