"I began my apprenticeship at GAM in August 2023 and have been working with the Finance team for the past six months. During this time, I have acquired valuable knowledge of accounting and finance. At the end of February, I moved to the Data Management team. Additionally, I attend a vocational school and am currently enrolled in a bilingual class."

Mark Ardüser, Apprentice

"I started my three-year apprenticeship at GAM in August 2022 and am currently in my second year. I have worked in various departments such as Fund Oversight, Internal Audit, Client Services, Client Data, Client Reporting and currently in Communications. I have learnt a lot and had a lot of fun in each of these departments. I have two final exams in the summer of 2024 and the knowledge I have gained in the different departments will help me pass these final exams."

Danilo Frey, Apprentice

"I am currently in an apprenticeship at GAM, set to conclude in the summer of 2024. Throughout this period, I have had the opportunity to explore various departments within the company, including Facilities, HR, Internal Audit, Fund Oversight, Consolidation, and finally, Product Development. Over the course of my three-year apprenticeship, I have acquired a great knowledge and will be well prepared for the exams, drawing upon the valuable insights I have gained at GAM."

Erblin Sulejmani, Apprentice

"Our apprentices are one of the most important assets at GAM. What they learn today will shape them personally as well as our company in the future. It is therefore a personal concern of mine to find and follow the right path with the apprentices so that they can combine school and practical work in the company in a way that promises success. At GAM, we as practical trainers strive to realise these goals for our apprentices. We give them the necessary nourishment in terms of knowledge, oriented towards the relevant specialist area and apprenticeship year. For me personally, it is always a new challenge and enrichment to work together with young apprentices and to promote the mutual exchange of knowledge."

André Siegenthaler, Practical Trainer
