SYZ & CO Expands Asian Operations

Jul 27 2010 | 8:49am ET

The Swiss alternative asset management firm SYZ & CO is boosting its operations in Hong Kong office, and is also changing its name in the region.

The firm announced today that it will promote and distribute its institutional asset management solutions and its OYSTER investment funds in the region. Daniel Ghirardi has been taped to lead the expansion of the Hong Kong entity, which has been known as 3A Asia but will soon become SYZ & CO Asia.

“We have identified strong demand in the region for innovative products with high added value. The extension of our activities will enable us to capitalize on the contacts established over the last few years to offer the full range of the Group's products throughout South-East Asia and Australia,” said Eric Syz, managing partner.

Ghirardi, who will take up his job in September, will replace Jennifer Carver and Brian MacDougall. Before joining SYZ & CO last year,  Ghirardi established the institutional sales activity in Geneva for the Massena group, a Luxembourg-based multi-family office.

“Despite an extremely competitive environment, Banque SYZ & CO has earned the respect of the institutional and professional investor market, thanks to its investment track record and its coherent range of top-performing products. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to present these investment solutions to the Asian market,” said Ghirardi.

SYZ & CO has €18.3 billion in assets under management and employs a staff of 380. In addition to the Bank’s headquarters in Geneva, the group also has offices in Switzerland in Zurich, Lugano, and Locarno, and internationally in Milan, Rome, Madrid, London, Luxembourg, Vienna, Nassau and Hong Kong.
