Ute Keil graduated with a degree in business administration from the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration. After completing her degree she worked at BKS Bank in Vienna as a Business Development Specialist for Corporate Clients. In 2006 she joined Swiss Life Asset Management as portfolio manager in the equity & balanced fund team. In 2011 she joined Fisch Asset Management and is portfolio manager responsible for several funds and segregated accounts.
Stephanie Zwick joined Fisch Asset Management in 2010 and is currently co-manager on the firm’s FISCH CB Hybrid International fund alongside Stefan Meyer. The fund holds global convertible bonds and the managers believe performs well in volatile markets. Zwick previously worked as a product manager for UBS Global Asset Management and graduated from Maastricht University with a Master’s degree in International Business.
The Fund invests globally in convertible bonds with hybrid characteristics. Hybrid convertibles profit from rising equity markets and at the same time provides an effective capital protection against equity setbacks. The strategy of the FISCH CB Hybrid Int. Fund beats a pure fixed income portfolio because of the asymmetric return profile and offers further diversification within the bond quota. Swiss pension funds may classify an investment in the Hybrid International Fund as a bond investment. An independent pension fund consultant is supervising the strict investment strategy.
