Vontobel Asset Management has combined its multi asset capabilities with Vescore to create a CHF40bn multi asset boutique.
Systematic solutions will continue to be offered under the Vescore brand, while more fundamental solutions will be offered under the Vontobel Asset Management brand.
Investors can now choose between systematic, fundamental or combined strategies based on a state-of-the-art risk management setup. The combined teams will be led by Daniel Seiler, who currently leads Vescore.
Seiler will also take over the leadership responsibilities of Christophe Bernard, who has decided to leave Vontobel after transfer of responsibilities is complete. He joined Vescore as chief investment officer in 2009. Prior to this, he ran the hedge fund platform of Swiss Capital Investment AG.
"Markets change all the time, so investors and we must adapt continuously. By combining skill-based and systematic expertise in one platform, Vontobel can access a wider range of alpha sources," commented Daniel Seiler, head of Multi Asset Boutique.
