Amaury is founding partner and a significant shareholder of Avalor. CEO until April 2021, he has in recent years increasingly focused on developing and mentoring the firm’s younger partners. While he continues to support the firm in client-related activities, Amaury has worked hard to ensure that he is eminently expendable. Amaury spends his time between Singapore and Zurich.
A Swiss national, Amaury was raised in Munich, Strasburg, Sydney, Prague, Montreal and New Delhi, before completing his studies in Paris and Boston. He is a graduate of the American University of Paris (summa cum laude) and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.
Prior to founding Avalor in 2005, Amaury spent twenty years in the investment industry, first on Wall Street, later in Zurich where he worked for one of Switzerland’s foremost private banks. Amaury obtained his CFA Charter in 1990, was founding President of the Swiss CFA Society and is a former Board member of the CFA Institute. More recently, Amaury was a founding member of the Alliance of Swiss Wealth Managers (ASV/ASWM).
