BlueBay hires industry veteran to expand Swiss team

Specialist fixed income manager, BlueBay Asset Management (BlueBay), has appointed Stephan Eckstein to the newly created role of Sales Director.

Based in Zurich, Eckstein reports to Roberto Valsecchi Oliva, Head of Switzerland and Southern Europe and will be responsible for developing BlueBay’s presence with wholesale investors in the region. Stephan’s appointment continues to bolster BlueBay’s Swiss presence, following the appointments of Renato Aebi and Marc-Hendrik Berthold in 2018.

 
Valsecchi Oliva says: “Stephan is a very experienced senior sales individual who I believe will be integral in driving and further developing our Swiss wholesale presence. Stephan’s appointment highlights BlueBay’s strong commitment to deepening our relationships across Swiss investors and complements BlueBay’s wider focus on building and nurturing deep client relationships.”
 
Eckstein has more than two decades industry experience, most recently as Head of Wholesale Switzerland for Schroders, which he joined in 2000. Prior to Schroders he held a number of roles at Zurcher Kantonalbank.
