Human Resources Manager
Yves brings to Quadia’s team his 25 years of institutional fund management experience, mostly in the field of Sustainable Investments, an activity he has actively developed and promoted since 1995.
In particular, Yves was instrumental in the launch of the first Luxembourg based sustainable fixed income mutual fund in 1997. In that capacity, Yves pioneered the development of a proprietary database which gathered and calculated non-financial data to provide the fund managers with both an efficient decision making and reporting tool assessing the portfolio’s sustainability features. Since then, he adapted the methodology to Swiss and European equities and led all UBP initiatives related to sustainability between 2000 and 2011.
He began his career in 1985 with Paribas in Geneva, focusing on fixed income portfolio management. In 1992, he was named senior European fixed income portfolio manager at Union Bancaire Privée (UBP). From 1995 to 2012, he was head of the bank’s Social Responsible Investment product offering and had an active role in marketing UBP’s approach to institutional clients throughout Europe. Since 2012, he heads third party services at MFT Services S.A. in Geneva.
During his nearly 20 years at UBP, Yves developed and implemented complex projects in the areas of sustainable investments, mutual funds, marketing and institutional client management, notably in the area of portfolio reporting frameworks.
Yves has a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Geneva.
