   Wealth Managers - Switzerland - Asset Managers


CANDRIAM Switzerland LLC, today with offices in Zurich and Geneva, has been providing services to Swiss clients since 1999.

Candriam is a leading global asset manager with a strong European presence based on 20 years of experience. With investment centers in Brussels, Paris, Luxembourg and London, our conviction-driven investment solutions cover five key areas:

- Fixed Income
- Equity
- Absolute Performance Strategies
- Sustainable Investments
- Advanced Asset Allocation


Candriam is part of New York Life Investments, one of the world’s largest asset management groups with approximately CHF 577 billion (end June 2019) in assets under management. In addition to its own strategies, Candriam is also the European distributor for the range of products of New York Life Investments boutiques which are highly specialized in Private Markets Investments solutions such as Real Estate, Private Debt and Private Equity as well as US Fixed Income.


Candriam currently accounts for almost 25% of New York Life Investments’ assets under management.


Candriam stands for “Conviction And Responsibility in Asset Management”: conviction-based investment decisions and a sense of responsibility to our clients run through everything we do.


SRI Expertise since 1996

In addition to standard strategies, at Candriam, we offer a specialist SRI product range based on the joint work of our team of dedicated SRI analysts and each of our investment teams. Our SRI funds cover equities, fixed income and asset allocation strategies and the European, North American, Asia-Pacific and emerging market regions.


Our approach towards SRI involves selecting firms with leading Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices in their field, direct dialogue with companies to encourage them to improve their behavior, and a proxy voting process that we have been refining since 2003.

Overall, 32% of our total assets under management are invested in SRI strategies (as of June 2019).





In addition to our investment teams located in Brussels, Paris, Luxembourg and London, we have teams on the ground in nine European countries, close to the clients that we serve.








Stability and dynamism have kept Candriam's core management team together for more than 15 years. The company is headed by an executive committee composed of 9 people presided over by Naïm Abou-Jaoudé, CEO. Vincent Hamelink, CFA, is CIO Fundamental Investments, Fabrice Cuchet is CIO Alternative Investments and Renato Guerriero is Global Head of Distribution.
