About Us

We are a global asset management firm built by investors, for investors. We focus on truly active management of differentiated investment strategies.

We value original thinking, swift decision making and a disciplined approach to investing. Our job is to put clients’ capital to work to help them achieve their aspirations and make sense of the markets through our insights and investment acumen.

For more than 30 years, we’ve been providing active investment solutions across a broad range of capabilities, working with integrity, conviction and an entrepreneurial mind-set.

Collectively we manage CHF 126.9 billion1 in assets for institutions, financial advisers and private investors. Our investment professionals, who on average have more than 18 years of industry experience, manage CHF 69.9 billion1 in client assets. In addition to investment management, we also offer private labelling solutions, such as management company and other support services, to third parties – a business that has grown to CHF 57.0 billion1 in assets over the past two decades.

With around 1,000 people in 13 countries, we are a truly global firm in scale and resources, yet small enough to remain nimble and flexible to meet clients’ needs.

Working with us means investing in honest foresight and human rigour and a fundamental belief in the potential of capital.
