Swiss bank SYZ appoints new manager selection head from UBP
Swiss banking group SYZ & CO has appointed Katia Coudray Cornu as head of its funds analysis and manager selection department, to help identify managers for its Oyster portfolio range.
Before joining SYZ & CO, Coudray Cornu worked for 10 years with UBP in Geneva where she headed up multi-management and manager selection.
Before that, she headed the investment funds department of Banque Edouard Constant in Geneva, which later became EFG.
Coudray Cornu will help Xavier Guillon, CEO of OYSTER Funds
She will identify trends and identify people to manage sub-funds, and select third-party funds for the open architecture platform.
SYZ & CO has internal managers for asset classes such as European and global equities, bonds, asset allocation and absolute return.
“On the other hand, we prefer to entrust to talented external managers the management of asset classes for which we do not have any specific expertise, so as to always be able to offer high-performing funds,” said Alfredo Piacentini, managing partner.
