The Swiss Shareholders’ Association (SUISHARE) has been launched, in May 2017 as a not-for-profit organization, to protect and advance;
- Ethical business environments through enhanced Corporate Governance with increased independent oversight,
- the interests of investors in the Swiss Market,
- the educational level of investors through courses, seminars and online trainings
- interests of all other stakeholders.
In ensuring appropriate ethical and governance standards, SUISHARE aims to protect the Swiss economy, all those who rely on it and the overall good image of Switzerland.
The Swiss Shareholder Association (SUISHARE) is focussed on protecting and promoting the interests of shareholders and stakeholders. SUISHARE supports its member’s desire for profitable companies operating in an ethical business environment.
The majority of staff of SUISHARE are volunteers and draw no fee or other remuneration for their services. They may have representation expenses, such as travel costs compensated. Financial outlays will primarily be for IT expenses, permanent office staff, office running costs such as rent and telecommunications, and general expenses.
Company monitors around Switzerland review larger listed companies’ performance, governance and reporting, visit AGM’s and inform the SUISHARE community to their findings via the SUISHARE website, and through regular meetings.
For an overview of the functionality / how to use the SUISHARE website, you can read a summary here: Guidebook
As we have launched the SUISHARE website far ahead of schedule, the roles and responsibilities are still being determined.
Here will be listed the backbone of SUISHARE, the people who are assisting with the running of SUISHARE, visiting AGM’s, analysing publications etc. Not all of our valued helpers necessary want the exposure on the website.
These pages will be updated as soon as the majority of the advisory board – who work in Industries (primarily Law, Finance, Insurance & Pharma) receive the all clear from those companies to officially take on a role on the SUISHARE Advisory Board.
Due to a company attempting to intimidate Advisory Board members, who all act on a voluntary basis, by calling their place of employment, it has been felt that they can still contribute their valuable advice without publication of names at the moment, until this untoward behavior has been resolved.
Here a summary of the Advisory Board to date:
A.B.: A Swiss expert on Diversity. Lic. jur.
D.B.: Strategist in Democratic politics for many years. A protagonist among the Illinois Democrats who persuaded Barack Obama to run for president.
O.S.: Professor, Head of one of the world’s major business schools. An expert in corporate governance & ethics
N.G.: Swiss based Ethicist. Phd, MBA; Retired Global Head of a multinational company. Now consultant.
|Fusing three decades of experiences in Swiss SMI companies in a wide range of functions, from R & D, Finance, Marketing, Information Technology, HR, Compensation, Analytics and Corporate Functions together with additional expertise in corporate governance, Artificial Intelligence and Social Media, Mike brings an expansive experience, an agile analytical mind, creative insight and a strong social conscience to the Board.|

A little over a year ago we lost a friend and early supporter of SUISHARE. Christoph was a brilliant financial mind and was always ready with the right advice and guidance.
Christoph was involved with creating and implementing investment solutions for more than 24 years. He started his career off with a thesis on the Japanese capital markets (Japanische Options- und Wandelanleihen: eine Untersuchung der japanischen Unternehmensfinanzierung mit langfristigen Wertschriften, insbesondere der Wandel- und Optionsanleihe)
He then managed Swiss Franc-based balanced and specialised mandates and acted as risk management adviser for UBS, where he engineered structured products. For the next 11 years he worked for the institutional business at Lombard Odier, and then spent years as head of the Swiss team. In 2006 he joined InCentive Asset Management, found his passion for gold, and in 2007 launched the GoldCentive Fund. In 2014 he joined Swiss Rock Asset Management AG in Zürich as a partner where he managed the Swiss Rock Gold fund, successor of the GoldCentive Fund.
Shortly before his passing he had gained world renown as he controlled the turbulence of the volitility in gold investments and had consistently managed to curb losses in the sector better than any of his dedicated sector specialist peers.
We are richer for having known him.
