Golding Capital Partners, an independent asset manager for alternative investments, has opened a new office in Zurich, Switzerland. The company is also setting up a new impact investing division, which will serve professional investors in Switzerland.

Jeremy Golding, founder and managing partner of Golding Capital Partners, stated in a company press release: “We are scaling up our existing presence in Switzerland by opening our own office in Zurich to meet the tremendous demand, particularly for infrastructure and private debt. Many local investors want to increase their allocation to infrastructure assets and diversify even further, especially as a result of the changes to the BVV2 regulation for company pensions. The Swiss market is of great strategic importance for us”.

The company has appointed Beat Frühauf as the new country head for Switzerland to lead the office. Beat Frühauf has more than 20 years of experience serving Swiss customers and previously held positions at BNP Paribas Schweiz AG, at BlackRock Asset Management Schweiz AG and UBS Investment Bank in Zurich.

Golding Capital Partners is headquartered in Munich, Germany and has additional locations in Luxembourg, London, Tokyo and New York.
