Geneva banking group repatriates former CIO

Following the departure of Loïc Schmid to Geneva-based multi-family office 1875 Finance, GS Banque has hired Adrian Schönauer as its new chief investment officer, effective 1 August 2017.

Schönauer, who has been the former CIO of the company at the time it was branded Banque Benedict Hentsch & Cie, will also head the advisory department of the Swiss banking group.

Schönauer left the company in 2009 to become investment adviser to a Swiss major family office.

GS Banque has unveiled plans to expand its asset management team through new hires and partnerships.

The firm’s CEO Grégoire Pennone said young talents will be further integrated to the team to obtain a balance of experience, youth, ingenuity and entrepreneurial mindset.
