Our work centers on you


Your choice

Investing by means of a mandate solution allows you to keep the big picture in view – and in the easiest possible way. To ensure that you always have the agility and flexibility you need, all of our mandates can be tailored to your individual requirements and expectations.

Your freedom

You make one decision – after that, it’s us who stay on the ball for you. With our experts taking care of optimizing your investments, you yourself are freed from the need to make day-to-day decisions. Short and sweet: You have more time for the important things in life.

Your advantages

Vontobel reacts quickly and effectively to changes and opportunities in the market that can be realized via your mandate. And since your mandate provides full transparency into its performance, you can see and follow what is happening at any time.



Our mandates

Investors aiming to achieve performance on par with the market itself often rely on passive index strategies such as those offered by ETFs. Our aim is to outperform the market – and to do so with a comparable degree of risk. That’s why our philosophy at Vontobel is to operate as an active investor.

High five for discretionary mandates: With managed solutions, experts take care of the tactical asset allocation

In Wealth Management, you can recognize active investing by the Vontobel 3α Investment Philosophy®. It aims to generate the famous “alpha” from three sources of return: through diversification, by making investments based on strong convictions, and by identifying individual opportunities. For your benefit, we combine this approach with our other core competencies to create multi-asset Vontobel 3-alpha asset mandates.

Would you like to invest in individual, sustainably successful companies? Our Specials mandates give you this opportunity, supported by our equity research and a quality approach we adhere to strictly.

We offer Specials mandates in these areas

  • Swiss equities
  • European equities
  • US equities
  • Global equities
  • Global dividend achievers
  • Global bonds


  • Vontobel Diversifier

    Make asset class-specific investments in equities or bonds

    This mandate offers a robust portfolio that invests in global bond and equity markets. Alternative investments can also be included. The mandate is implemented by making a selection of indexed and active investment instruments. In addition, investors benefit from investment products we have developed in-house, which among other approaches invest in stock markets using “smart indexing,” an effective index strategy. The Diversifier mandate provides solid diversification not only across asset classes, but also across regions, sectors, and types of investment instrument.


    Vontobel Diversifier offers you the following advantages:

    • Broad diversification
    • Long-term orientation

    This mandate offers you a global portfolio that invests in assets Vontobel considers particularly convincing.  It follows the tactical decisions of our Investment Committee regarding asset allocation, while the assessment of individual investment opportunities is based on the expertise of Vontobel’s in-house economists and strategists. In the equities area, the focus is on quality shares with high market potential. In addition, we invest in line with high-potential megatrend themes, identifying target companies that should benefit from structural growth. The mandate is implemented by means of passive and active funds.


    Vontobel Conviction offers you the following advantages

    • Dynamic asset allocation
    • Attractive, blue-chip companies
    • Megatrends


    1 of 2 Allocation by asset class

    Conviction Sustainable

    If you consider issues such as sustainability, social responsibility, and ethical corporate behavior important, Vontobel Conviction Sustainable is a good choice for you. Here, you can combine the quality criteria already used for the Conviction mandate with additional sustainability criteria. You’ll find more detailed information on sustainability at the link below.
