Vontobel continues multi-boutique expansion in North America

NEW YORK, September 12, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–With growing demand from US and Canadian investors for systematic and fundamental investing, Vontobel has made available select strategies from its Vescore and Sustainable Equities boutiques.

The newly available strategies, which are built upon consistent investment philosophies combined with deep research, disciplined processes, and risk management, include systematic multi-asset solutions, as well as strategies focused on impact investing, sustainable emerging markets equities, and opportunities in China.

  • The Vescore Active Beta Strategy invests in global equities and government bonds with a focus on tactical risk premia management through quantitative model-based allocation and risk management to help provide optimal allocation without behavioral bias attuned to the prevailing market environment.

  • The Vescore Active Beta Opportunities Strategy employs tactical allocation of five risk premia—equities, fixed income, commodities, volatility, and currencies—to create robust portfolios that seek long-term, positive absolute returns, diversification potential, and liquidity.

  • The Global Environmental Change Strategy provides access to clean technology pioneers by seeking to invest in stocks of innovative, global companies with long-term growth potential that provide solutions for clean water, clean energy, future mobility, smart building, resource efficiency, or recycling.

  • The mtx Sustainable Emerging Markets Leaders Strategy invests across global emerging market equities, seeking companies with above-average quality in terms of return on invested capital and strong industry positions that are able to invest in future growth.

  • The mtx China A-Shares Leaders Strategy seeks to invest in stocks of companies characterized by high return on invested capital and strong market positions. Stocks in the portfolio qualify as either China A-Shares or are linked to China A-Shares.

“With more than 30 years’ worth of investment management, Vontobel has established its global success through differentiated investment expertise,” said Thomas Wittwer, Chief Executive Officer of Vontobel Asset Management, Inc. US. “We believe these strategies have a long track record of success internationally, and we are excited to make them available to investors in the US and Canada as we help them achieve their long-term investment goals.”

This latest launch of strategies from its Sustainable Equities and Vescore boutiques completes Vontobel’s multi-boutique rollout in North America, strengthening its established presence in the region by introducing additional solutions to US and Canadian investors. Last year, it debuted three emerging markets bonds strategies from its Zurich-based Fixed Income Boutique. In 2017, TwentyFour Asset Management, Vontobel’s London-based fixed income boutique, entered the US market, joining the firm’s well-known global equity expertise of the Quality Growth Boutique.
