Baloise Asset Management sets up its own sales structure

Basel, January 26, 2017. As part of the growth strategy communicated at the 2016 Investor Day, Baloise Asset Management is expanding its range of products for institutional customers. Josef Bossi, Head of Institutional Sales, has been tasked with setting up the necessary sales structure.

Baloise believes the time is right to make further inroads into the pension fund market. Baloise Asset Management is repositioning itself as a strong partner for pension funds in the Swiss market. Josef Bossi is responsible for setting up and expanding the institutional sales team. He will also be focusing on the sales strategy and the new product offering. Bossi, who studied economics at the University of St. Gallen, has more than 20 years of experience in supporting institutional customers. He previously worked at Vescore AG as Head of Consultant Relations & Client Services and at Notenstein Privatbank as Head of Institutional Customers for the Basel/Bern region.

According to Bossi, the economic conditions for targeting the pension fund market are ideal. Firstly, numerous Baloise investment products had secured a leading position over their competitors as at the end of 2016. Secondly, new funds for institutional investors will be launched over the course of this year that will optimally satisfy pension scheme investment requirements in the current environment of low interest rates. In future, Baloise will offer its institutional customers investment solutions like the ones that it successfully uses in its own insurance portfolios.
