Frédéric Plisson runs the Echiquier Major fund adopting a bottom-up style with the stock-picking focused on sensibly priced growth stocks with a market capitalisation of €1 billion plus. Plisson graduated from Paris X Nanterre with a degree in economics in 1985 but his first significant position in finance came when he joined the equity sales team at Ferri, the société de bourse, in 1989. After seven years with the Ferri he had two further stints in equity sales at Bankers Trust and then Exane. In 2002 he finally made the move into fund management with Financiere De L’Echiquier. When not working, Plisson enjoys playing golf and tennis.
