Founder, CEO

After finishing my studies at the University of Geneva with an MSc in Economics and Social Sciences, I was hired by Daiwa Securities Tokyo as a broker on Japanese equities. At the end of 1987, I joined Bearbull, an independent Swiss asset manager, as an analyst and fund manager for Asian Markets. In 1993, I became an independent asset manager and a founding shareholder of vandaalen.



Founder, Risk control and Compliance Manager

My university studies were in prehistoric archeology and higher piano studies at the Conservatory « superieur » of Music of Geneva. I organised classical concerts during ten years. I was a town-councillor of the City of Geneva for six years (“rapporteur general” of the budget and member of commissions of Finances, Culture, Information). I bring twenty five years of experience in wealth management as my contribution to our company’s development.



Portfolio Manager

After studying economics at the University of Geneva, I began my career in 1978 as a financial analyst at SBS (Société de Banque Suisse) in Basel and New York.
Then I joined Banque Bruxelles Lambert in Geneva as a portfolio manager in 1984.
From 1993 to 2009, I worked with Lombard Odier in Geneva also as a portfolio manager. In 2009, I joined an independent asset manager which I left in 2012 to join vandaalen.



Portfolio Manager

After I obtained a degree in Wealth Management and Investments in Geneva, I began my career in a financial company for seven years as a portfolio and investment funds manager, specializing in SRI (Socially Responsible Investment).
Then I worked in a similar position for a Geneva wealth management company, which I left at the end of 2013 to join vandaalen as an independent portfolio manager.



Financial Analyst & Portfolio Manager

It was in parallel with my university studies, a master’s in economics with a specialization in monetary economics, that in November 2014 I joined Van Daalen and Cie S.A. as part of an internship as a management assistant. Since 2015, I have been dedicated to research and tracking portfolios in order to optimize personalized and appropriate investment strategies. I also ensure that the research, financial and extra-financial, is reconsidered and adapted regularly so as to always offer the best services to our customers.
