Unigestion has announced a strengthening of its institutional presence in Germany, with the hiring of Reto Germann from Credit Suisse.

Germann will work with the $13.6bn Swiss manager’s institutional clients team focusing on Germany and Austria. Some 90% of Unigestion’s clients are institutional, the remaining 10 are from a handful of wealthy families. Most recently he worked with Credit Suisse since 2009, and before that at Barclays Capital from 2005 and UBS Group from 1993.

Tom Leavitt, managing director, head of the institutional clients at Unigestion, said his firm aimed to have an “integrated approach to clients”, and Germann would bring the new skills of structuring to the team “which will help collaborate more effectively with clients”.
