In Switzerland, Fisch enlarges its talent pool

Switzerland’s Fisch Asset Management has expanded its portfolio management abilities by hiring a convertible bond manager, a global corporate bond manager and a credit analyst for emerging market debt.

Fisch chief executive Philipp Good said: “The signing of Gerrit Bahlo and Maria Stäheli as seasoned portfolio managers for convertible and corporate bonds, respectively, represents a major step forward in our plans to expand capabilities and competencies.

“Additionally, the appointment of Daniela Savoia as a credit analyst for emerging market bonds will increase our coverage in this high-growth segment.”

A further two appointments are expected in the coming months.

Currently, the firm has 10.8 billion Swiss francs (€9.3 billion) under management and is primarily active in Switzerland and Germany, where it is mainly recognised for expertise in convertible and corporate bonds and in multi-asset/absolute returns strategies.

Last month the Zurich-based firm said it would hire five additional “international specialists” as part of a growth plan that would first see its major investment in research and portfolio management and an extensive outsourcing of in-house technologies.
