Vontobel merges two boutiques

Zurich-headquartered asset management company, Vontobel Asset Management, is merging two boutiques to create one systematic and thematic boutique.

The new boutique will have 10 billion Swiss francs (€8.7 billion) in assets under management.

The company said the merging was to enhance its sustainable investing offering to investors. Its goal is to fulfil client requests and grow the asset base significantly over the coming years.

Andreas Knörzer, head of business, sustainable and thematic boutique, said: “Investors have increasingly specialized requirements when it comes to sustainability.

“It is our belief that there is no single right approach to ESG, hence we offer different concepts from exclusion of companies that breach sustainable values, to the full integration of environmental, social and governance factors. This is a unique proposition in this demanding growth sector.”
