RELATED TOPICS​

SYZ Asset Management, the institutional arm of SYZ Group, has established its total return strategies team under the leadership of chief economist Adrien Pichoud, who now takes the role of head of total return strategies. 

The team will incorporate and enhance SYZ AM’s multi-asset, fixed income and equity premia portfolio range.

The investment philosophy of flexible asset allocation, disciplined risk management and liquidity remains at the heart of the proposition, while the combined expertise of the multi-asset, fixed income and global equity teams will benefit total return strategies. The new team will also be supported by quantitative analysis insights across asset classes from the quantitative solutions team, headed by Benoît Vaucher.

Under the new structure, Pichoud, who has been a senior member of the multi-asset team since 2015, is responsible for the investment strategy. Maurice Harari will oversee equity allocation with the support of the global equity team for security selection; credit selection will be performed by the credit team led by Antonio Ruggeri and Christophe Buttigieg will oversee the emerging market debt exposure.

Pichoud, head of total return strategies at SYZ Asset Management, says: “Our objective is to maintain the continuity of the time-tested philosophy and robust multi-asset process, while enhancing the strength and depth of the team, as well as leveraging areas of expertise from across SYZ Asset Management. With the new total return strategies team, we have built a platform that offers investment solutions well suited to the low-rate environment. Our focus is to generate income for our investors, using a diversified set of liquid instruments and a structured allocation process that combines macro, valuation and risk analysis.”
