We work with some 500 institutional investors

BCV is one of Switzerland's top-rated institutional asset managers and has asset-management operations in both Lausanne and Zurich. The team comprises more than 120 experts from a range of backgrounds and manages assets and liabilities all under the same roof. Their work includes developing cutting-edge management techniques and risk-management tools, designing and selling innovative products, and advising clients.

Consistency and sustainability

BCV’s Asset Management team has over 40 years of experience in managing assets for pension funds and other institutional investors, using an investment approach that focuses on risk-adjusted returns. If you join this team, whether in discretionary or advisory management, you will work with 40 fund managers responsible for some 60 BCV funds that invest in an array of asset classes, from equities and bonds to commodities and alternative investments. If you are familiar with advanced techniques – such as semi-active and active management, and asymmetric risk management – we offer a range of opportunities in both advisory and investment-management roles.

I split my work time between BCV and the Lausanne business school where I’ve been teaching macroeconomics and financial management for ten years. As a result of the close ties between these two organizations, BCV co-developed the model for its Liquid Alternative Beta fund (see video) with Eric Jondeau, a professor at the business school.

 

Fabio Alessandrini, head of quantitative and alternative investments

Discretionary or advisory management

Clients can have their assets managed through a discretionary or advisory mandate.

Investment advisory service

In this role, you will advise professional investors on buying and selling securities, discuss investment fund analyses, organize regular investment-policy meetings and take on board any specific requests. You will offer each client a tailor-made service, overseeing both the operational and administrative aspects of each portfolio.

Management mandates

If you opt to work in our management-mandate team, you will work with our experts to develop a strategic asset allocation for our clients based on their risk-return profile. You will monitor the portfolios and keep in regular contact with your clients.

Professional development

To enable you to respond to your clients’ needs as effectively as possible, you will have the opportunity to hone your skills through our specialized training programs that cover various fields.

Creating synergies

Our entire Asset Management team, from design to sales, is located on the same floor, which makes discussions among colleagues easier and more productive.
