Swiss asset manager Unigestion has expanded its European footprint by setting up an office in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The new location will accommodate the firm’s German sales team, who will cater to both institutional investors as well as intermediaries.
The office will offer clients access to an array of strategies covering equities, multi asset, alternative risk premia and private equity.
Unigestion CEO Fiona Frick said: “Düsseldorf is an international business and financial centre and home to a number of Unigestion investors, so is a great hub for the team to be based in as we look to grow in Germany.”
The Düsseldorf branch will be headed by Unigestion head of institutional clients for Germany and Austria Florian Rehm.
Commenting on the expansion, Rehm said: “Germany has a well-established investment market and the office opening reinforces our commitment to serving German investors.
“A local presence will allow us to strengthen existing relationships, broaden our investor base and work more closely with investors looking for unique investment solutions.”
Through the recent expansion, the firm aims to ramp up its regional distribution capabilities.
The Geneva-headquartered firm has many offices across Europe, North America and Asia.
Apart from Düsseldorf, the firm also has offices in Zurich, London, Paris, Jersey City, Toronto, Montréal and Singapore.
