Swiss asset management firm Clarus Capital Group has targeted the markets of Israel and Turkey with the appointment of three client advisers from Lombard Odier and UBS.
One of these advisers is Christian Schroeter, who was in charge of building client books in Switzerland, Turkey and Israel at Lombard Odier.
The other two advisers – Konstantin Levitansky and Alen Cekic – join from UBS.
Levitansky served at UBS’ Israel desk. Cekic was responsible for Russian as well as Ukrainian clients at the same firm.
With the addition of the new employees, Clarus Capital’s workforce has increased to around 30.
Clarus Capital managing partner Giancarlo Guetg said: “With Christian Schroeter and Konstantin Levitansky we are addressing new target markets such as Israel and Turkey.
“Thanks to Alen Cekic we are able to look more extensively after our new and current Russian and Ukrainian clients.”
Founded in 2011, Clarus Capital offers wealth and asset management along with family office services.
On its website, the firm said that its aim is to offer long-term protection of assets.
In 2018, the asset management embraced the digital wave by collaborating with Zurich-based fintech firm Evolute.
Clarus Capital’s selection of the Evolute platform was said to be driven by the latter’s integrated portfolio management system, reporting capabilities, as well as fixed interfaces with custodian banks.
