investment philosophy.

Our investment research team is among the largest of all Swiss private banks, and covers a broad spectrum, including:

  • Equities
  • Bonds (sovereign, corporate, convertible, etc.)
  • Investment funds
  • Alternative investments

We use a structured investment process combining top-down asset allocation with our bottom-up convictions. As the world of lower economic growth reshapes traditional assets’ expected returns, we constantly rethink ways to improve investment outcomes.

We combine expertise across traditional and alternative asset classes with state-of-the-art portfolio construction techniques to help our clients unlock the right opportunities in a fast-evolving investment world

Our strategic asset allocation goes beyond traditional investment strategies. We invest in differentiating, return-generating strategies that reflect the new economic and geopolitical realities.


portfolio management.

At Lombard Odier, we construct portfolios based on our clients’ goals, risk appetite, personal and tax circumstances. Our portfolio managers offer both discretionary and advisory investment services.

With our discretionary offering, we invest on behalf of our clients. We draw on proven market expertise to help our clients achieve their financial goals. Our advisory solutions give our clients a two-way relationship with a dedicated banker who liaises with our investment experts. This investment service enables you to be in control but not alone.


sustainable investing.

We created our first sustainable investment and analysis system in the late 1990s and have been continuously developing ever since. We see these tools as an essential extension of our financial analysis and as a means of refining our investment strategies. Our systems take into account multiple data points to establish finely tuned sustainability analysis and provide the associated reporting. We are also able to establish a 'temperature trajectory' for portfolios to assess the extent to which they are contributing to global warming, in line with the Paris Agreement targets.

All of this proven expertise is made available to our clients, for whom we can create fully tailored sustainable portfolios. We have also developed specific strategies in climate transition, natural capital and green and climate bonds.

For us, sustainability is a core belief, with the transition to a circular, lean, inclusive and clean (CLICTM ) economy at its centre

The next economic revolution has begun and sustainability is a key driver of future returns. For those with the skills to adapt to this new reality, sustainability will create new sources of alpha, open up new investment opportunities and lead to enhanced return and reduced portfolio risk.
