Derek Queisser de Stockalper — an author, trusted advisor, and innovative thinker — is one of the great minds working in sustainable, alternative, and impact investment fields. Being an expert at what he does, Derek is often summoned by magazines and newspapers for his views on numerous topics. Citywire Switzerland published an article, Swiss selector sets sights on Europe’s middle class, focusing on how Europe’s ‘just managing’ working population represents a compelling investment story for Derek Queisser.

You can read the original article here or read excerpts below:

“A go-to for many European politicians in recent years has been the ‘squeezed middle class’ — those neither aided by state support, nor earning enough to build wealth. Many people dismiss this issue as mere sloganeering to garner votes, but Derek Queisser, of Swiss group Queisser & Cie, is finding opportunities among companies taking these challenges to heart.”

“Queisser says help could come in the form of products, services, and housing and he is pinpointing funds and companies able to address these needs. ‘We are using a thematic filter to find businesses that can support the middle class. For example, if you look at affordable housing in real estate, there is a real gap.”

“‘People are looking at how this could make traditional finance more efficient. But I believe it could also change our way of working for the better and improve the social relationship. This is perhaps a bit philosophical but that is where we are headed.’ — Derek Queisser”
