EI Sturdza Investment Funds has formed a partnership with Johann & Graemiger Partners, a specialist fund distributor with a local presence in Zurich, to further expand EI Sturdza’s institutional investor base in the region.
The strategic partnership will see Johann & Graemiger Partners represent EI Sturdza’s range of equity funds to institutional investors in Zurich and other German-speaking regions of Switzerland. As a specialist fund distributor, Johann & Graemiger Partners will also act on behalf of EI Sturdza’s partner firm VIA AM.
EI Sturdza’s fund range includes the Morningstar-rated Strategic Europe Value Fund, led by portfolio manager Willem Vinke. The fund’s performance helped EI Sturdza be crowned Best European Equity Group at the Citywire Switzerland Awards 2017.
Georges Gutmans, Executive Chairman, EI Sturdza Investment Funds says:
“With roots in Switzerland through the Geneva-based Banque Eric Sturdza group, the country has remained a core focus for our investment funds since inception in 1999. The partnership with Johann & Graemiger, with their local presence in Zurich, will strengthen investor relationships in this market and help grow our business in Europe.”
Sigrid Johann / Silvia Graemiger, Partner, Johann & Graemiger Partners says:
“We only partner with high-quality fund management businesses that offer our client base in Switzerland with a diverse and relevant fund range. EI Sturdza offers investors access to experienced, proven portfolio managers with a strong track record of delivering returns across equity markets, and we look forward to working closely with the team.”
