Why Long-Term Investing Still Pays Off
Investors are looking for all sorts of returns both from efficient and inefficient market segments, based on a combination of systematic and fundamental approaches.
To fulfill investors' demand, Vontobel Asset Management combines its Multi Asset Class and Vescore expertise in a CHF 40 bn Multi Asset Boutique which offers now different investment options.
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. Daniel Seiler will also take over the leadership responsibilities of Christophe Bernard, who has decided to leave Vontobel after transfer of responsibilities is complete.
"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," says Daniel Seiler, Head of Multi Asset Boutique.
Daniel Seiler joined Vescore as Chief Investment Officer in 2009. Prior to this, he ran the hedge fund platform of Swiss Capital Investment AG. He holds a PhD and a Master’s degree in Financial and Capital Markets Theory from the University of St. Gallen as well as a Master’s degree in Environmental Sciences from ETH Zurich.
