Notz Stucki acquires alternative manager JAM Research

Tuesday, December 10, 2019
Opalesque Industry Update - Geneva-based group Notz Stucki recently acquired the Geneva-based alternative management company JAM Research.

Founded in 2002, JAM Research provides hedge fund investment services to wealthy private clients and will be integrated into Notz Stucki on 1 January 2020.

This transaction forms part of the strategic growth plan announced by Notz Stucki in June, with a view to actively participating in the move towards consolidation within this sector in Switzerland.

Founded in 2002 by Alexis Sautereau, JAM Research specialises in the analysis and selection of hedge funds with a view to building multi-strategy portfolios that generate a consistent absolute performance.

Alexis Sautereau has more than 20 years' experience in a variety of financial sectors. He began working in options and equities trading before moving into technology consulting and then corporate finance. In 1999, he joined Unigestion, one of the European leaders in alternative management, and became executive director, before leaving in 2002.

At Notz Stucki, the JAM team will concentrate on managing and developing their client base. They will also contribute their experience to the analysis and selection of alternative managers.

The company will be operationally integrated into Notz Stucki in January 2020.

Notz Stucki intends to play an active role in the consolidation of the Swiss independent management industry. With CHF 10 billion under management, it has the resources it needs to realise its growth ambitions, particularly through attracting management teams or acquiring existing businesses.

"This acquisition was able to happen very quickly because we have many common traits. JAM Research has considerable experience in alternative investments and the two companies complement each other perfectly," explained Damiano Paternó Castello.

"In Notz Stucki, we have found an ideal partner that will allow us to focus on the essentials: providing our clients with a highly personalised service and offering them high-performing management focused on capital preservation. Thanks to Notz Stucki's solid operational infrastructure, we can now fully focus on these core aspects. We will also have access to a more extensive range of strategies and a broader services offering", added Alexis Sautereau.
