My life before Fisch Asset Management
Following my education at the Cantonal School, I began to gather my first experiences in the working world in 1987. It was only by coincidence that I landed in the banking business. In the back-office area of UBS and subsequently at Credit Suisse, I was able to increase my financial know-how by working at various trading desks. Following these experiences with the big banks, I worked for a Swedish portfolio manager. I soon recognized that I was very interested in the IT area, and this motivated me to co-found a software company in 1994 that I was able to build up. We developed software for portfolio management, ranging from back-office applications to analytical tools. I met Kurt Fisch during a round of golf. It was a coincidence that the young Fisch Asset Management at the time had substantial needs in the IT area. To make a long story short, FAM became a client of mine, and we got to know each other better as time passed. I ended up joining FAM in 1996. As a result of this move, the software company BlueSky Softworks became a subsidiary of FAM.
My duties at Fisch Asset Management
Fisch Asset Management is a highly specialised company in many aspects and to permanently questioning and optimizing our products and procedures is of umtost importance to us.

When I'm not working, then ...
... whenever the weather lets me, I'm often on the golf course with my family and friends. Otherwise, I like improvising on the piano (jazz, bossa, ballads). In autumn, I frequently enjoy sitting on the balcony or in the garden and gazing at the stars through my telescope (2000 mm, Schmidt-Cassegrain), with a good glass of wine in my hand.
What significance do "fish" have in my life?
Fish are something I prefer grilled.
