Carmignac furthers its European expansion by opening an office in Zurich
After 12 years distributing its actively managed Funds in Switzerland, Carmignac announces the opening of its subsidiary in Zurich, demonstrating its long-term commitment to ensure transparency, high quality service and state-of-the-art investment solutions for Swiss based investors.
Under the leadership of Marco Fiorini who is Head of Country since 2011, the 6-member Swiss team will have the task to strengthen their relationships with Swiss Retail and Wholesale clients through a tailor-made regional approach.
Carmignac has successfully built strong business partnerships with major distributors in all parts of Switzerland to serve Swiss and international client needs. It now envisages to ensure that Swiss Retail clients have the same opportunities to invest with Carmignac as in all other European countries. The full fund range is available to the Swiss based clients including share classes in Swiss Franc, US Dollar, British Pound and Euro.
In addition, Carmignac recently launched a new monthly distribution share class within its Carmignac Portfolio Patrimoine fund which sums up to 5% p.a1. This new solution enables Swiss based investors to draw an income from their investment and tackle their retirement challenge, especially in a context of negative interest rate situation. These solutions allow them to diversify their portfolios and benefit from our 26 years of outstanding returns and risk management during financial crisis.
Edouard Carmignac, Chairman of Carmignac Gestion: “We are willing to help Swiss investors to face their main challenges, namely achieving financial serenity for retirement, preserving wealth and drawing an income from savings and investments.This has been the essence of my conviction when creating Carmignac Patrimoine and today with the new Carmignac Portfolio Patrimoine Mdis shareclass we make an important step into the retirement challenge.”
In line with its long-term business model, Carmignac has been distributing funds across 12 countries over the last 26 years, and also operates in Luxembourg, Frankfurt, Milan, Madrid, London and Zurich.
