Damien Kohler has held the position of Head of the European Small & Mid Caps team at BNP Paribas Asset Management since 2006. In this capacity, he oversees a focused team of portfolio managers managing a consistent range of Small and Mid Cap products. In addition, Damien is also Senior Portfolio Manager, and thus holds responsibility for European Mid Caps and Euro Small Caps, as well as for portfolio management for the UK and Swiss markets (all Caps).
Damien began his career in 1993 as an internal auditor for BNP Paribas General Inspection worldwide. In 1997, he moved to BNP Paribas Asset Management, where he worked on the UK market before progressing to UK and Mid Cap products portfolio management. Though Damien’s position in the organisation has evolved, he has remained committed to the UK and Mid Cap markets, allowing him to develop an in-depth understanding of this domain.
