In its current issue, SPHERE magazine presents its pick of the eleven best Swiss asset managers. In centre field: the creative "midfielder" Marc Engel, manager of the Fortuna Multi Index 30 fund.
Train. Score. Fair Play. The motto of the Swiss national football team is also that of the country's fund managers presented by SPHERE. The magazine has put together its own national team of fund managers, selected primarily on the basis of the quality of their results over the past three years.

The midfield is where major decisions are taken between defence and attack. Marc Engel has been managing the Fortuna Multi Index 30 since January 2014. His success is shown by its performance. Over a three-year period, the fund's assets under management, amounting to CHF 17 million, increased by 10.18 per cent.
