Sybille Peter, who was previously responsible for investment services at Aquila, will step down from her role to start a new family office.
This was confirmed to Citywire Switzerland by Max Cotting, CEO of the Zurich-based platform for independent asset managers.
He said Peter had been a member of Aquila's top management, with responsibility for marketing and sales .
However, she now has an opportunity to set up a single family office for a Swiss family, whose name was not disclosed.
‘She will continue to work for Aquila part-time on a mandate basis in the future,’ Cotting added.
As the main shareholder in Aquila and its CEO, Cotting will take over Peter’s responsibilities in the investment services domain.
He said that for now the new single family office managed by Peter will not be a part of the Aquila platform, as it is not an asset manager and does not require the corresponding Finma license.
