Jean Keller, CEO of fund of hedge funds 3A, has resigned to join a boutique asset management firm.
Keller has led the fund of funds arm of Swiss private bank Syz & Co. for five years, more than quadrupling its assets during his tenure and extending its reach outside of Switzerland. Keller, the brother of Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch CEO Hubert Keller, will remain on several of 3A’s boards, Financial News reports.
Syz co-founder and Chairman Eric Syz will replace Keller on an interim basis.
Keller plans to join Argos Managers as CEO in February, when his non-compete agreement expires. He has already purchased a stake in the firm and will be an equal partner with its chairman and chief investment officer, Christopher Gelli and Philip Best, respectively.
“I wanted to do something more entrepreneurial and go back to my roots in institutional asset management,” Keller, who headed institutional asset management at Lombard Odier before joining 3A, told FN.
