Fisch Asset Management is an independent asset management boutique based in Zurich and is one of the leading convertible bond managers worldwide.

The Group of Boutique Asset Managers (GBAM) is a global network of like-minded, independent specialist asset managers who have come together to improve their presence in international marketplaces. Members do so by sharing information and promoting their presence both individually and collectively to potential investors.

The principle activities of GBAM are:-

• To foster cooperation among member firms.
• To identify best practice and share experiences in all aspects of asset management (research portfolio management, risk control, marketing etc).
• To improve understanding of operating in international markets.
• Improve recognition in the marketplace of the advantages offered by small, specialist businesses by providing a representative voice in the media.
• To support members by highlighting their expertise in their chosen fields.

The chairman of GBAM José Luis Jimenez said, “We are delighted that a boutique of the calibre of Fisch has joined our group. Since our inaugural meeting in Valladolid under a year ago the group has now grown to 16 members, representing asset managers from Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia and managing over €100bn of asset under management.”

Dr. Pius Fisch, chairman and founding partner of Fisch Asset Management said, “I am very pleased to be working with a range of different specialist boutiques from around the world. I’m sure I will learn much from their expertise while making a useful contribution to the Group.”
