About us

SGMR was founded by Charles Mardini, Ygal Rabinovici and the banking group Societe Generale which owns 25% of SGMR’s capital. The remaining 75% is held by the two founding partners through their joint holding company M&R SA.

The creation of SGMR is first and foremost the result of a strong human bond between Charles Mardini and Ygal Rabinovici who became friends 25 years ago when they both started their careers at CBG Bank, Compagnie Bancaire Genève.

The big idea driving the startup of SGMR in 2010 was to create a financial company whose modus operandi would be exclusively based on independent thinking enabled by totally open architecture. SGMR is a company that works closely with dozens of custodian banks as well as with a network of partners selected in each case according to SGMR’s specific requirements. This open-ended policy protects the company’s independence while allowing access to optimal partnerships. Societe Generale’s stake in SGMR fulfils the bank’s desire to reinforce their reputable institution with an independent and dynamic structure operating on a human scale.

Thanks to this privileged partnership with the Societe Generale Group, SGMR occupies a unique position among asset management companies in Europe.

In a little over 10 years, SGMR has become one of the leading players in Swiss finance. Today, the assets entrusted to its management make it a reference in the world of independent asset managers in Switzerland.
