A family office started by a top manager from wealth management platform Aquila is now up and running with three partners.
Sybille Peter, who was previously responsible for marketing and sales at Aquila, launched a new family office in August this year.
The new entity now has a website and a name, YSMA. Aside from Peter, who is partner and managing director, another employee and a board member is attorney at law Rolf Herter.
The firm already has three partner firms, one of which is Lugano-based Colombo Wealth Management, of which Peter is a non-executive board member.
The other two partners are Paris-based independent asset manager Twenty First Capital and Luxembourg-based asset management boutique European Capital Partners.
The services that YSMA provides include: advisory on family assets in all asset classes, risk analysis, selection of custodian banks and asset managers based on risk-reward analysis, consulting on direct investments with a focus on exit strategies, co-investments and business development for family-owned companies with a focus on developing markets abroad.
