Jupiter hires Evelyn Lederle to head new Zurich office
Jupiter Asset Management has opened a new representative office in Zurich and appointed Evelyn Lederle as Senior Sales Manager, Switzerland.
This extends the continental sales team which is led from Munich and reports to Martina Guenzl, Sales Director, Europe.
Jupiter said the opening of the new office reflects the growing demand for its funds from professional buyers in Europe including private banks, fund of funds, family offices and wealth managers following the opening of an office in 2010.
Lederle was previously responsible for the key asset management accounts at Clariden Leu AG and has over 10 years’ experience in international financial services, having previously worked at DZ Privatbank and Robeco AG.
Kevin Scott, Executive Director International at Jupiter said the new offices signalled the firm’s commitment to the region, and Lederle’s appointment is an important step towards growing business in Switzerland. “We see the careful and considered expansion of our international business as absolutely crucial to Jupiter’s overall business strategy,” he added.
Jupiter has been actively developing its Jupiter Global Fund SICAV since 2007 and now has 14 funds available, including portfolios managed by some of Jupiter’s highly-regarded fund managers such as Alexander Darwall, Philip Ehrmann and Miles Geldard.
