As COO at ZWEI Wealth, Andrea Schlapbach is responsible for operational excellence and, as a member of the Executive Board, for the strategic development of the Wealth Office platform.
"As an entrepreneur and investor, I was and still am constantly confronted with investment topics, because I want to achieve my goals in this area as well. This is to a large extent a compulsory exercise, a lot of administration and monitoring in a broad field. This is where I work with professionals so that I can concentrate on what is important to me and what I enjoy doing.
This is exactly what ZWEI does for our clients. We support all stakeholders in our ecosystem with simple, clear and robust processes and tools so we can get the combined best out of people and tools. We avoid unnecessary elements and focus on the essentials.
I am happy to support (young) entrepreneurs in wealth management matters immediately before or after M&A transactions."
