Oct 25 2010 | 2:01am ET

Switzerland's SYZ & Co. has merged its alternative investments and traditional institutional asset management divisions into a single overarching money management arm.

The newly-created SYZ Asset Management will oversee all of the bank's funds, including those run by its 3A fund of hedge funds unit. The new division features exclusive research, analysis, portfolio and risk management, marketing and operations features, allowing the firm to simultaneously market all of its asset management wares to its pension fund, insurance company and corporate clients, among others.

"We are currently witnessing a rapid convergence between the traditional world of investment and alternative management," Paolo Luban, head of the new unit, said. "The integration of our activities creates strong synergies and positions us as a particularly versatile institutional asset manager."

"Our expertise, proven track record and capabilities in traditional asset classes and portfolios of hedge funds allows us to be particularly competitive in traditional multi asset absolute return mandates, which are in high demand at present," SYZ Asset Management CEO Patrick Bédat added.
