HSBC Switzerland has expanded its investment and client service teams in Geneva, Zurich and Dubai.

Christopher Matthey, previously a senior hedge fund advisor and portfolio manager at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, joins HSBC’s alternative investment group, which provides advisory, discretionary and execution services in the area of hedge funds, private equity and real estate. He will serve as head of discretionary portfolio management in Switzerland, based in Geneva.
