New asset unit from SYZ & CO
The Swiss banking group SYZ & CO is to integrate its institutional asset management activities within a newly-created division, SYZ Asset Management.
SYZ Asset Management will manage the Group’s institutional mandates, both traditional and alternative, as well as investment funds, while Banque SYZ & CO will offer the Group’s products, such as OYSTER funds or 3A funds, to professional intermediaries.
Together with the existing SYZ Asset Management entities in London, Milan and Hong Kong, SYZ Asset Management in Switzerland will serve institutional clients across the Group, focusing on pension funds, insurance companies and corporates.
From its inception in 1996, SYZ & CO has been exclusively focused on asset management and has developed its institutional asset management expertise from the outset through a variety of asset classes.
“We are currently witnessing a rapid convergence between the traditional world of investment and alternative management. The integration of our activities creates strong synergies and positions us as a particularly versatile institutional asset manager” said Paolo Luban, managing partner of SYZ & CO and head of asset management.
