Syz Hedge Advisory Group's two founders leave to start own asset management company in Geneva

Friday, May 28, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update – Banque SYZ & CO has announced the departure of Roberto Almaleh, Head of the Hedge Advisory Group, and Nathalie Davies- Charbonnier, who will be leaving the Bank during the summer to launch an asset management company. Strengthened by two new hedge fund specialists, the Hedge Advisory Group will be placed under the responsibility of Fabian Dufresne, Head of Private Banking.

Roberto Almaleh and Nathalie Davies-Charbonnier have expressed the wish to give a different orientation to their careers by pursuing a personal project involving the creation of a Geneva-based asset management company. Having joined the Bank in September 2003, Roberto Almaleh and Nathalie Davies-Charbonnier together founded the Hedge Advisory Group, the private banking unit dedicated to the very specific needs of wealthy private investors and family offices wishing to invest directly in hedge funds.

Since its creation, the Hedge Advisory Group has been extremely successful, thanks to a range of specific services that meet the needs of a demanding clientele. These high added-value services include in particular discretionary management of hedge fund portfolios, active fund selection advice, the setting-up of tailored funds of funds or even global custodian services for hedge funds.

During their seven years with the Bank, Roberto Almaleh and Nathalie Davies- Charbonnier have, thanks to the quality of their network of contacts and their excellent reputation in the hedge fund world, helped to position SYZ & CO as a key player in this area. The Bank will in fact continue to cooperate actively with them, so as to benefit from their expertise in this market.

The Hedge Advisory Group will be managed by Fabian Dufresne, Head of Private Banking. The team, strengthened by the arrival of two new hedge fund specialists, will offer an even wider range of strategies and talented fund managers.
