MFEX, independent experts in global fund distribution, have opened a second office in Switzerland, in Zurich. Its priority is to serve Distributors and Asset Managers based in German-speaking Switzerland, Germany, Liechtenstein and Austria. This will complement our offer to the Swiss Market, with MFEX having been present in Switzerland for several years, with an office in Geneva, where MFEX has been serving the largest banks in the region.

The new Zurich office will be headed by Michael Bürgisser, a former employee of the Swiss Private Bank Julius Baer who used to be Managing Director and Senior Advisor in the Markets division from 2006-2020. Michael Bürgisser will bring his 26 years of experience in the fund industry to help grow MFEX’s presence in the region.

The establishment of the new office will allow MFEX to leverage on its strong regional foundation to deepen the relationship with Distributors and Asset Managers, as well as winning new clients in the region. MFEX will continue its focus on excellent customer service and on developing innovative value-adding services for both distributors and fund companies.

Michael Bürgisser says: “I warmly welcome this opportunity. Formerly a client, now a provider. This slogan runs as a red thread in my projects, aimed at tailoring solutions and implementation of superior customer experience. I am glad that with MFEX we share the same values and goals.”

Frederic Hayat, Managing Director of MFEX Switzerland, said: "We are proud that Michael Bürgisser has chosen MFEX to continue his career, as his high profile and experience will help to expand MFEX's presence in Switzerland.”
