Team and strenghts

Mr Freymond and Mr Garcia have built up considerable experience in institutional asset management. They have been working in this extremely demanding sector since the LPP came into force in 1985, having held managerial positions in various banking institutions such as Pictet & Cie, UBS and UBP before founding BBGI Group. In these banks, they directed institutional investment strategy, diversified mandates, equity and fixed income mandates as well as sustainable investments (they created sustainable development strategies at Pictet&Cie and Union Bancaire Privée for balanced mandates), and real estate investments.

The BBGI Group Team is comprised of thirty investment professionals. The two founding partners of BBGI Group have been collaborating for more than 25 years.

Our Team


Alain Freymond


Fernand Garcia

Together they form the inner core of the BBGI Group investment management team and have very solid joint expertise. They share the same philosophy in investments and risk management, which has created a strong company identity, guaranteed sustainability and superior ethics, which represent a great plus for our clients. Our team of managers also boasts wide-ranging expertise in all investment domains. They each draw on an average of 15 years’ experience and each has developed an analyst / manager profile in their respective favorite fields. The combined range of experience within the BBGI Group team allows our clientele to take advantage of the best skills and analyses possible.

Our research team benefits from our analysts/managers’ skills on a daily basis. The research team regularly drafts documents relating to fundamental or quantitative analysis, economic forecasts, share selection, and our investment strategy. You will therefore gain access to our market vision, to our international and Swiss macroeconomic indicators as well as numerous other market analysis documents and internal publications.
