Signina Capital expands senior management team

Zurich-based Signina Capital, a specialist in structured asset management, has expanded its senior management team with the addition of two new partners, Malcolm Paterson and Thomas Flury, who join the firm's three founding partners.

Paterson is Signina's head of investment management and responsible for the investment process throughout the firm. Before joining Signina Capital, he was GAM's head of operations in the fund of hedge funds group. During his nine-year GAM career, Paterson implemented the firm's ISO 9001-certified investment process.

Head of client relations Flury joined Signina in late 2006, having previously worked at UBS Private Bank as a senior relationship manager who was jointly responsible for the development of private banking business in Scandinavia.

'In the dynamically growing market for structured asset management, we are on track to achieve further growth,' says Signina chief executive Marco Laube. 'With the appointment of our two new partners, we can offer even greater experience and depth of specialist knowledge to our clients in the area of absolute return investment products and solutions.'

Signina develops investment solutions using modern financial instruments and quantitative models that seek to improve the risk-return profiles of clients' investments, using absolute return strategies involving funds of hedge funds, single hedge funds and theme-based investments such as water, timber and precious woods.

The firm's services are primarily directed towards family offices, asset managers, private banks and institutional investors. At the beginning of this year Signina moved its head office from Basel to Zurich and all front-, middle- and back-office operations are due to transfer during the first quarter.
