Portfolio returns of the best Swiss Asset Managers in the first half-year 2021

The first half of the year brought a veritable market rally on the equity market. Swiss franc-denominated investment portfolios achieved a median return of between +1.7% and +11.0%, depending on the risk category.

The difference between the best-in-class swiss asset managers’ returns and the others is considerable, despite the market environment made it easy for all asset managers to generate returns for their clients.

Asset managers: overall satisfactory performance, shortfalls in more aggressive investment strategies.

The evaluation of the results of banks and asset managers also shows large differences in the returns achieved in 2021. The chart summarizes the comparisons. The median reflects the average asset manager, and the benchmark shows the results of the financial market without the involvement of a manager. It is noticeable that the asset managers succeeded in achieving added value especially in the conservative investment portfolios. Here it was worthwhile to hire a manager. As soon as a larger part of the portfolio was invested in shares, the results of the average asset manager compared worse.
