After graduating from Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Paris (ESCP) in 1972, Edouard de L’Espée trained as a financial analyst and then worked for Banque Rothschild in Paris, first as a private client relationship manager, then as a trader on the Eurobond market.
In his early years, he became convinced that he would best serve private clients by building deep expertise in financial markets and economics to master his own investment decisions.
In the following years, he successfully developed these skills; in 1981 he started managing a bond fund for a subsidiary bank of UBS group named Banque Cantrade Ormond Burrus Geneva and portfolios for its private clients.
In 1986, he joined the Cursitor Group in London to develop private client management activity in a closely associated company while participating in the development of macro-economic forecasting tools.
He has been managing both private clients and yield funds for over 30 years, earning Standard & Poor’s distinctions for outstanding performance over 3, 5 and 10 years.
In 1999, after having moved back to Switzerland, he founded Calypso Asset Management SA, an external asset management company in Geneva and held the position of Executive Managing Partner. In 2008, Calypso Asset Management was absorbed by Compagnie Financière Aval SA, and Edouard became a Managing Partner of Compagnie Financière Aval SA and Chief Investment Officer of the company.
In 2013, he joined Quaero Capital SA, a Swiss-licensed independent fund management firm, as co-manager of a dynamic yield fund.
Since 2005, he is on the Board and Audit Committee of the Wendel Group (France), a public investment company with gross assets of over 10 billion Euros which takes major participation as an active shareholder with a long-term perspective.
In 2017, Edouard co-founded SingAlliance (Switzerland) SA in Geneva and acts as Senior Fund Manager of the company. He now serves as a Consultant for the company.
