ISP Group AG continues expansion strategy

The independent financial services boutique ISP Group continues its expansion strategy by opening a new presence in Geneva.


This is in line with the recent office openings in Lugano in April and in Hong Kong in January this year. In addition, ISP Group is strengthening its activities by announcing two new highly experienced professionals with remarkable track records in advising and servicing institutional clients.

The Geneva office is headed by Giancarlo Caldognetto, who joined ISP Group in January 2019 as a Senior Fixed Income Advisor. Giancarlo is a seasoned investment specialist with more than 20 year of financial market experience. Prior to joining ISP Group, Giancarlo was a relationship manager with the Global Family Office Group of BNP Paribas in Geneva serving large continental European families. Before that he was Head of Fixed Income Institutional Sales at BNP Paribas and ABN AMRO in Geneva.

Marco Bartolucci, CEO of ISP Group, comments: “I congratulate Giancarlo on his new appointment. With our new office in Geneva and the offices in Zurich and Lugano, ISP Group brings the full range of products and services to our clients in the French, German and Italian speaking parts of Switzerland to help them achieve their ambitious goals. And I am excited about Giancarlo and his team offering their services locally and, as planned, also in Monaco and Luxembourg in the future.”

Moreover, ISP Group strengthens its presence in Liechtenstein with Felix Schiebel joining the team to service clients in different institutional investor markets. Having worked for several banks and financial institutions in Mexico City, Frankfurt, Paris and London for a period spanning more than two decades, Felix has a tremendous track record in the corporate and structured finance business.

Pieter Strobos, an accomplished senior relationship manager and investment specialist with a wealth of experience recently joined ISP Group. He will be responsible for business development, both in terms of the existing offering as well as with respect to developing new products and services. Throughout his career, Pieter held various investment advisory and sales positions covering professional clients at private and investment banks such as Lehman Brothers, Credit Suisse and UBS.
