JP Morgan Asset Management has named Claude Kurzo as the new country head for Switzerland, replacing Patrick Beuret who has decided to leave the firm.

Based in Zurich, Kurzo will now be responsible for developing the firm’s fund operations in Switzerland and developing client relationships.

At the same time, he will also be responsible for evaluating business opportunities in the Middle East and Africa for the firm’s funds business.

In the new role, he will report to the firm’s head of EMEA funds Massimo Greco.
