The company

Where we came from

Bally Capital Advisors AG has been founded in November 2003 by Jacques Bally following a career of more than 20 years working for private banking desks of prestigious banks in Geneva and Zurich.

The Bally family members are descendants of the "Dame Royaume", iconic and heroical figure who played a crucial role in the battle that Geneva led against the invasion by the Duc de Savoie Charles-Emmanuel in 1602. Descending from a long-lasting lineage, the Bally family members always bear in mind a long-term investment horizon. They are aware that when one gets involved in the investment universe, being short-sighted can only lead to one misfortune.

Bally Capital Advisors AG is a member of the Swiss Association of Asset Managers (SAAM) and the Groupement Patronal des Gérants de Patrimoines (GPGP), which is the oldest association of Asset managers in Switzerland. The GPGP is an exclusive committee which comprises some of the oldest and most traditional families in Geneva.
