Markus was a Managing Director at Credit Suisse before founding his own asset management business HQAM. HQAM pioneered “quality investing” which is based on a proprietary methodology of analysing equity and debt investments. Before he sold his business to an entity that was later acquired by the Swiss Raiffeisen group, the firm had accumulated over CHF 1.5 billion in assets under management.
Markus holds a BA in Economics from Columbia University and MSM from Boston University. Markus was born and raised in Switzerland speaking both German and English.
