TESTIMONIALS

The process of strategy development [supported by Claude Diderich] was interesting. Although the changes to our existing model seemed subtle, the impact is considerable. I believe that the business model we came up with makes a lot more sense now"
Paul Bernardt, Managing Director, UniGroup Relocation Network, now called Harmony Relocation Network
The early conversation among the group [strategic advisory committee] seemed to show that each company wanted different things from the organisation and arriving at a sensible sized list of goals was not going to be possible. Debate and questioning enabled a core list of common goals to be identified around which a strategy could be developed. Claude persisted with simple questioning, leading us to the sensible solutions"
Paul Haynes, Cadogan Tate
Dr. Claude Diderich developed a risk budget engine to optimally translate our market views (TAA) into a concrete client portfolio considering all client restrictions. This engine consistently and transparently aligns the client's portfolio allocation to our tactical view, thus minimizing the loss of alpha-relevant information during the implementation process. Furthermore, the integration of the risk budget engine allowed us to streamline our portfolio management process, thus minimizing implementation costs"
Massimo Ferrari, Head Quand & Balanced PM, Zürcher Kantonalbank
Claude brought to UBS a wealth of structure, knowledge and experience in shaping the discretionary in-vestment process. His solid academic background and detail orientation helped implementing a consistent risk-based process enhancing the quality of transmission of our investment house view into each individual client portfolio"
Andrea Franceschetto, while Director, Portfolio Construction, UBS Wealth Management (former colleague)
This [business unit strategy development] exercise enabled the organization’s leaders to take a look at the business with fresh eyes. It enabled us to challenge and re-examine what has been considered best practice and to re-define this, whilst ensuring we are all aligned regarding where our focus should lie"
Manpreet Dhami-Magne, Director, Destination and Immigration Services, packimpex Ltd.
