Notz Stucki appoints Christophe Verbaere as Chief Operating Officer

Wednesday, April 21, 2021
Opalesque Industry Update - Geneva-based asset management firm NOTZ STUCKI has appointed Christophe Verbaere as Group Chief Operating Officer. The COO role looks after operations and IT, and has a seat on the Executive Committee. With extensive experience in finance and other sectors, Christophe Verbaere is very well equipped to take forward the Group's digital transformation. Before joining NOTZ STUCKI, he was Chief Technology Officer at fixed income specialist Atlanticomnium in Geneva.

Christophe Verbaere began his professional life in 1994 at the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (Paris) as a technical expert on the Ariane series of European space launchers. In 1998, he moved to Geneva to start a new career in financial IT, and has developed his expertise in process optimisation and bank and asset manager digitisation on an ongoing basis. Christophe Verbaere also continued his space activities by helping to develop technology companies specialising in hypersonic drones, microsatellites and image analysis applied to economic intelligence. In addition to a diploma in aeronautical engineering and astronautics from ESTACA (Paris), a risk management and quantitative analysis diploma from HEC (Geneva) and several certificates in finance and portfolio management from ISFB (Geneva), Christophe Verbaere trained in data science and artificial intelligence at ENSAI (Paris). He succeeds Patrick Hamon, who has decided - after 10 years with NOTZ STUCKI - to return to his native Brittany.

Along with ability to generate alpha and offer highly personalised investment management, technological innovation is now key to securing the future growth of an asset management company. Moreover, technology plays an essential role at every stage of the value chain, whether at the level of data architecture, IT security, process automation, decision support tools, risk management or the client interface.

With CHF 10 billion in assets under management, NOTZ STUCKI is one of Switzerland's largest independent asset managers and naturally has the resources required to make the necessary investments in its future growth, particularly in the area of new technologies.

Grégoire Notz commented: "In our industry, we can never stop investing if we want to remain at the cutting edge. Over the last 10 years, we have considerably strengthened and modernised our infrastructure, under the leadership of Patrick Hamon. The new challenge we are facing is the digital transition. Thanks to his extensive professional experience, Christophe Verbaere has all the tools needed to be successful".

Christophe Verbaere added: "I'm very happy to be joining NOTZ STUCKI, which has a consistent record on innovation. I'm also delighted to be joining a company with such a strong heritage and which has a real vision for the future and the means to implement it".
