Stanhope Capital, the investment management and advisory services provider to private clients, charities, endowments and institutions, has announced the appointment of Martin Naville to its advisory board.
The appointment comes as the company is set to move to bigger premises in Geneva, where Naville will be based.
Previously, he has been CEO of the Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce, and before that he was at the Boston Consulting Group, working in Munich, Zurich and New York.
Other roles held include being on the board of directors of Luxembourg life insurer Lombard International, and online bank Swissquote.
Naville’s appointment follows that of Christophe Karpiel as head of Investment Management earlier this year.
Nicole Curti, partner and managing director of Stanhope Capital Switzerland, said: “We are delighted to welcome Martin to Stanhope Capital’s advisory board. We have known Martin for a number of years and he has an impressive track record in developing quality business relationships in both Switzerland and the USA. This combined with his wealth management expertise will enhance our existing capabilities for the benefit of our Swiss and US-based clients.”
“This is the latest milestone in Stanhope Capital’s expansion strategy in the Swiss market where we aim to gain significant market share over the next three to five years. We are enjoying high levels of new business and we want to ensure that we maintain our focus on serving client needs and on our strategy of sustainable business growth. We will be moving into larger premises at Square de l’Académie 5 on 1 November and will be hosting a cocktail reception, for clients and business contacts on 24 November.”
