GAM has appointed three senior quantitative professionals to the GAM Alternative Investments Solutions (AIS) team, enhancing the group’s capability in liquid quantitative solutions.

Dr Lars Jaeger, founder of Alternative Beta Partners, an investment boutique based in Switzerland, and his colleagues Dr Pierre-Yves Moix and Dr Stephan Müller, have joined the group to enhance GAM’s existing liquid alternative risk premia solutions which are focused on institutional clients.
GAM has been managing portfolios of alternatives and investing in liquid quantitative strategies for clients for over 25 years. The GAM AIS alternative risk premia approach provides actively managed portfolios that aim to deliver liquid absolute returns with low correlation to traditional assets over the long term, all with full transparency and fee simplicity.
Alexander S Friedman, group CEO of GAM Holding AG, says: “As an active investment manager, the Group has been a pioneer in identifying and developing quality alternative investment solutions and teams. With the addition of these three well-regarded investment professionals, each with more than 15 years of experience, we deepen our commitment to liquid quantitative solutions and ensure we continue to be at the investment forefront.”
David Smith, chief investment officer of GAM AIS, says: “GAM has developed a robust approach to investing in liquid alternative risk premia for our clients. We have seen strong demand from institutional clients for risk premia solutions that complement their existing traditional and alternative investment exposures. Now, we are excited to welcome Dr Lars Jaeger, Dr Pierre-Yves Moix and Dr Stephan Müller to the team. Their experience and knowledge in research and implementing investment portfolios will broaden and deepen our current quantitative investing skill set and our portfolio construction capabilities.”
