About us

Founded in 1991, Loyal Finance AG is a Swiss public limited company specialising in fixed income based in Zurich.


Loyal Finance has been focusing on the management of fixed income portfolios for more than 30 years. Besides individual mandates and funds for institutional clients, our main target group, we now also manage retail funds and have become BCGE’s strategic centre of expertise on fixed income. Yet we remain an independent specialist asset manager with our own dedicated research and portfolio management team.

Our strengths

The experience, stability and track record of our specialists

An extremely experienced and stable team of fixed income portfolio managers with many years of expertise and an outstanding track record in managing fixed income portfolios.

The proximity, focus and flexibility of an independent and highly specialised asset manager

For almost 30 years, we have focused exclusively on the management of fixed income portfolios for predominantly institutional clients. All our activities are managed independently and geared solely towards safeguarding the interests of our clients, without any outside influence. This specialisation and the limited number of mandates allow for very close and long-term monitoring of portfolios and clients. Thanks to our exceptional flexibility, we are also able to respond to very specific client needs.

A structured, disciplined and time-tested proprietary investment process

The application of a proprietary, highly structured and disciplined investment process in both the interest rate and credit areas. This process is constantly evolving and has proven itself over the years and in many different market cycles.

Rigorous focus on portfolio management and accountability

The conviction that research, investment decision and implementation at portfolio level go hand in hand and should therefore be the responsibility of the same portfolio management team, without geographical or temporal separation.

The quality of asset management is always based on the quality of the persons entrusted with the task and the quality of the investment process.
