A family story since 1984

Rhône Gestion is as much a story of finance as it is one of friendship between Marcel Hagger and Arturo Fasana. Driven by shared convictions and common values rooted in their love of family, these two asset managers rapidly built a relationship of trust – and long-lasting friendships – with their clients seeking results and the transfer of wealth to their children.

1987

Levelheaded spectators to a Wall Street crash

On Black Monday, October 19, 1987, history proves us right (and not for the last time). Our management philosophy, rooted in tradition, rigor and stability, enables our team to keep its cool. That levelheadedness in dealing with the ensuing turmoil solidifies our clients’ confidence in us and the medium and long-term plans we laid out for them.

1989

Rhône Gestion doesn’t change a thing and it makes all the difference

On November 9, 1989, the fall of the Berlin Wall profoundly redraws the map of the world. It’s a turning point in history but it has little impact on Rhône Gestion. Faithful to our direction and with 10 more employees on our team the following year, we continue to grow exclusively through word of mouth.

1994

Bertrand Hagger – the dawning of a new generation

Embracing his father Marcel’s time-tested approach and bringing his own broker experience in the field, Bertrand Hagger joins Rhône Gestion and lays the foundation for the firm’s evolving family structure. It’s a milestone that takes place around the same time as the birth of a future giant, Amazon, the launch of Windows 95 and the introduction of Switzerland’s electronic stock market. It’s also the year we retire our good old telex.

1998

A major financial crisis with zero impact for Rhône Gestion

In September of that year, a crisis leads to Russia defaulting on its debt and blowing up bond rates. The ensuing market turmoil bankrupts the hedge fund LTCM and forces Wall Street’s big merchant banks and some European banks to quickly recapitalize. Our clients, however, are not affected. Then as now, our firm categorically refuses to invest in this type of speculation on failure.

Nice and easy, Rhône Gestion enters the 21st century

The new millennium brings with it the launch of the euro as well as the bursting of the internet bubble and ensuing collapse of NASDAQ. This doesn’t affect our customers, of course, because we’ve never confused value with valuation. It’s also the year we move into our new home on the banks of the Rhône, where history winds its way, like this long quiet river.

Rhône Gestion spared from the bankruptcy of Parmalat

The largest accounting embezzlement in European history creates a 14-billion-euro crater that impacts tens of thousands of investors. Rhône Gestion clients are protected once again, thanks to our circumspect and wise analysis that selects safe investments for the medium and long term.

Yannick Fasana joins the Rhône Gestion team

Taking an important step from journalism into management, Arturo Fasana’s eldest son first works at an established bank before joining Rhône Gestion. His natural curiosity and passion for fact-based information, along with his dynamism and fresh way of thinking, are vital in helping the firm adapt to a changing world.

2008

A year of living dangerously but not for Rhône Gestion

The worst economic and financial year in history since 1929. The subprime crisis in the United States engulfs bank after bank, pushing the world into unprecedented social and economic turmoil, not to mention exposing the excesses of Bernard Madoff’s monumental swindle. Once again, Rhône Gestion's distrust of structured products and alternative asset management (which we never understood…) enables us to protect our clients' assets.

Here’s to the another 40 years of trust

Slow and steady… A four-decade-long track record has by and large proven our traditional management model –performance remains consistent from one year to the next and long-term results testify to our firm’s reliability. Best of all, our clients have never had to doubt the loyalty and confidence they’ve placed in us. In the final analysis, they’re unanimous: Rhône Gestion, who else?
