Anti-benchmark asset manager Tobam has opened three new offices in Zürich, Toronto and Dublin, bringing the number of the firm’s offices to seven.
The four other locations are Paris, New York, Hong Kong and Cape Town.
The Zürich office will be managed by Beat Egger, managing director, business development for Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein.
Some 30% of Tobam’s current AuM are sourced from this region, the firm said.
Egger will leverage his existing relationships in this region to promote Tobam’s flagship anti-benchmark to the region’s pension funds, fiduciary managers and wealth managers.
The Dublin office will be managed by the firm’s chief operations officer David Bellaiche. Tobam said it will aim to capitalise on Dublin’s qualities as a technology hub and a gateway to the global funds industry.
Lastly, the Toronto office will complement Tobam’s four-people New York team. It will provide client relationships services to Tobam’s clients in Canada, and provide support for the firm’s recent strategic partnership with Canadian manager Mackenzie Investments.
Christophe Roehri, managing director, commented: “From the outset, Tobam has always thought of itself as a global company. We have seen a huge amount of interest in our unique investment process and inflows into our strategies have continued to come in from across the world.
“The new offices are not just testament to the remarkable growth we have enjoyed, they also demonstrate our commitment to providing the best possible, on-the-ground service to our clients.
“We have made high calibre appointments across the new operations, and the extensive local expertise they bring will help us further develop our relationships with institutional and wealth management clients across some of our key investor territories.”
Tobam currently manages $9bn (€7.98bn) in assets.
