Strengthening for further growth - ACOLIN Holding AG appoints new CEO

The exceptional growth of ACOLIN in recent years, the ongoing integration of Hugo Fund Services and the growing complexity of its business, triggered the decision to reinforce the management by separating the role of the Chairman of the board and the CEO.

To achieve this, the Board of Directors of ACOLIN Holding AG has appointed Mr. Stefan Bolt as new Chief Executive Officer. He will take office in Zurich on September 1st, 2018 and will be in charge with the organization and supervision of the ACOLIN Holding and its various subsidiaries in Europe.

Stefan Bolt has been working in the financial industry since 1990. The last 12 years he successfully spent as CEO of BonusCard AG in Zurich and previously 4 years as COO and Deputy CEO of Bank Adler & Co Privatbank. Before that he spent 8 years with UBS/Intrag as Head of Fund Logistics / Operational Services Switzerland and 3 years with AIG Private Bank as Head of Operations/Processing & Deputy Chief Operating Officer.

Daniel Häfele, founder of ACOLIN, will serve as Executive Chairman of ACOLIN Holding’s Board of Directors. This separation of functions will enable Mr. Häfele to entirely focus on business strategy and corporate development. Yves Hervieu-Causse, founder of HUGO Fund Services SA, will continue to serve as Executive Vice-Chairman of the Board of ACOLIN Holding AG. Petra Arndts, Viktor Fischer and Anne-Cathrine Frogg’s positions in the Group Executive Committee remain unchanged.

Over the years, working with over 1’400 funds of more than 500 asset managers worldwide, ACOLIN has become one of the largest independent providers of global fund registration and distribution services throughout the European Union and Switzerland. It continues to enable these asset managers to gain access to its global fund distribution network reaching more than 3’000 regulated financial intermediaries and institutional investors globally. 

With this current market positioning, ACOLIN’s objective is to pursue its growth and to further strengthen its leading position as an independent provider of cross-border fund-distribution infrastructure services.
