Zurich, 25 October 2010 - Swiss & Global Asset Management is extending its
onshore presence in Europe to Madrid, Spain. The new branch focuses on servicing
business-to-business partners such as wealth managers, insurance companies and
investment banks.

Swiss & Global Asset Management is further broadening its onshore footprint in
Europe. With the opening of the Spain branch in Madrid, the company now has
onshore activities in seven countries worldwide. Besides the headquarters in
Zurich, Switzerland, locations include the core markets Germany and Italy, as
well as Luxembourg, the UK, Hong Kong and the Cayman Islands.

The Iberian team will include Isabel Navalon, Carlos Costales and Juan Ramón
Caridad. Under the name of Swiss & Global Asset Management (Luxembourg) S.A.,
Sucursal en España, it will engage
in sales and marketing activities for institutional investors and
intermediaries. Among the solutions offered, a particular focus is placed on the
Luxembourg-based Julius Baer Funds registered in Spain. The team has many years
of in-depth experience in the asset management business and looks forward to
fostering existing client relationships and expanding the client base.

Strategic market and door-opener to other countries
While the investment management solutions are primarily provided out of Swiss &
Global's headquarters in Zurich, the Madrid branch focuses on the business-to-
business sales and distribution activities in Spain. The offering encompasses
over 40 equity and bond funds which are registered for distribution in Spain.

"With over 1000 distribution partners in over 30 countries, Swiss & Global is
one of the leading independent asset managers in Europe. As such, we are
constantly evaluating growth opportunities", says Michele Porro, Head Sales &
Distribution at Swiss & Global Asset Management. "Spain is a strategically
important market for Swiss & Global. We have a well-established Spanish client
base and the new local office allows us to foster these relationships even more
