Vice Chair for Asset Management, Co-Head of LAMCO, Credit Suisse
This summer it was reported that Credit Suisse's Nicole Arnaboldi would be leading a spin-off unit servicing the assets of DLJ Merchant Banking Partners, a Credit Suisse affiliate, which according to Bloomberg was in talks to be sold by its parent to British private equity firm Coller Capital. But Credit Suisse says Arnaboldi has no plans to leave the firm, where her responsibilities extend well beyond managing the investment committee of the New York-based DLJ unit. Arnaboldi is vice chair for asset management at Credit Suisse and co-head of the firm's legacy asset management company, overseeing illiquid investments in areas including private equity. She also is chairman of Asset Management Finance, a Credit Suisse majority-owned subsidiary that takes stakes in long-only and alternative asset managers.
Arnaboldi has been with Credit Suisse since 2000, following its merger with investment bank Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette, where the Harvard graduate (law degree and MBA) earned her spurs in private equity and venture capital. She currently serves on the Federal Reserve Bank of New York's investors advisory committee on financial markets, and is on the board of New Yorkers for Children, an advocacy group supporting children in the state's foster care program.
