YIELCO expands partner team with hire of Claudio Ghisu
Munich, 02.06.2020 - YIELCO Investments AG expands its partner team with private markets specialist Claudio Ghisu (formerly Executive Director at UBS Asset Management in Zurich). Additionally, YIELCO's investment team is growing with senior investment professionals for private equity and private debt.
Claudio Ghisu is joining YIELCO's management team and investment committee as a partner on June 1, 2020. He will be responsible for impact investing/ESG across all asset classes as well as for product management. Mr. Ghisu will support YIELCO as a member of the management at the Swiss branch.
Claudio Ghisu has almost 20 years of experience in investment management, including 16 years in private markets. Before joining YIELCO, Claudio was Executive Director of Private Equity at UBS Asset Management for five years. Prior to this, he was a partner at Diamond Asset Advisors, a specialized investment boutique for alternative investments. He also worked at Adveq Management (now SchroderAdveq) in Zurich for over 5 years.
Claudio Ghisu comments on his start at YIELCO: "I am pleased to be able to help shape YIELCO's continuing success story. The current market environment places high demands on the institutional investor community, which are less and less fulfilled by the classic and established investment business. YIELCO is innovative and strongly investor-oriented - both imperatives for success, especially in these extraordinary times."
Dr. Peter Laib, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of YIELCO Investments AG agrees: "We are delighted that with Mr. Ghisu we can welcome another partner with extensive expertise in the field of alternative investments at YIELCO. With his many years of experience and his network in our industry, Mr. Ghisu will be a valuable asset for YIELCO and our customers. His proven expertise in structuring customer-oriented solutions will enable us to incorporate further innovations into YIELCO's product range and to develop attractive solutions for our customers, particularly in the area of impact investing."
As part of expanding its business activities, YIELCO will also grow its private equity team with Malte Frederichs joining as investment manager in June 2020 and the private debt team with the hire of
Alexander Grad who will join YIELCO as senior investment analyst in July 2020. Mr. Frederichs has over six years of experience in private equity, most recently at Siemens Fonds Invest and previously at AssetMetrix, an asset service provider in Munich. Mr. Grad worked for UniCredit for over 5 years. Most recently he was an investment manager for the strategic alignment of investment portfolios in a multi-family office.
Additionally, Cédric Frei has been supporting YIELCO's business development at its Swiss branch as a manager as of April 2020. Like Claudio Ghisu, he previously worked for UBS Asset Management in Zurich and will focus on product management at YIELCO.
Dr. Peter Laib explains the development: "With this team expansion, YIELCO consistently takes into account both growth and increasing customer requirements. In addition to attractive products, our demanding customers also have excellent personal support at their disposal."
