London / Zurich | February 25, 2021
Today, independent wealth management firm Tiedemann Constantia has announced the opening of a new Geneva office and two new hires to support business growth and better serve its international clients. The firm can now also directly serve U.S. clients at home and abroad through a recently established standalone SEC regulated entity.
This expansion is a testament to Tiedemann Constantia’s growing international client base and the quality of its multi-jurisdictional family office service offering.
The new Geneva office will be located at 7, rue de Hesse, 1204 and will be led by Charles d’Oncieu as Director. As part of his role, Charles will be responsible for business development with a particular focus on French speaking regions.
The firm will be increasing their local investment expertise with the hire of Sylvie Golay, CFA, who joins Tiedemann Constantia as Chief Strategist and Deputy Chief Investment Officer. She will be based in Zurich and alongside CIO Pierre Bose, CFA, and will be responsible for the firm’s investment process, including strategy and portfolio management.
Robert Weeber, Founder and CEO of Tiedemann Constantia said: “Over the past year, our business has experienced strong results and demonstrated resilience in the face of market volatility caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. As we look to build upon our strong investment performance, Sylvie joins at a time of significant expansion for the business. This, coupled with the opening of our Geneva office under the guidance of Charles, and separately the establishment of our standalone SEC regulated business, demonstrates our ambitious growth strategy as we continue to strive to deliver the seamless global solutions our clients rightfully demand.”
Sylvie Golay joins from Credit Suisse where she worked for more than fifteen years in both Zurich and Hong Kong. She was previously Head of Financial Markets Strategy in the International Wealth Management Division and member of the Global Investment Committee. Prior to that, she led the Fixed Income Strategy team, having dedicated most of her earlier work to the analysis of credit markets. Sylvie also serves as an Innovative Finance Adviser at the International Red Cross Committee in Geneva, supporting the humanitarian organisation in developing new financing models.
Charles d’Oncieu joins from Cove Capital SA, a Global Macro Discretionary Hedge Fund that he launched in 2017, where he was also the CEO. Previously, Charles was an Associate Director at Analytical Research where he advised European Pensions on their Hedge Fund allocation. Prior to this, he spent time at Banque Hottinger & Cie and Banque Edmond de Rothschild.
This news follows the formation of Tiedemann Constantia’s Advisory Board in June 2020, which consists of industry leading experts with backgrounds covering numerous aspects of the financial and investment world. The Board, which offers the firm strategic counsel and supports long-term growth initiatives, comprises Carolina Müller-Möhl, Robert D. Hormats, Dr. Christian Camenzind and Dr. Michael O’Sullivan.
