About Frédéric Hottinger
With its Franco-Swiss background, Frédéric Hottinger’s family have been bankers for seven generations. Passionate about finance, his career is part of a long family tradition.

Frédéric Hottinger : his vision of finance
Beyond his professional activities, Frédéric Hottinger is drawn to new technologies and the world of start-ups. Convinced by the strength and potential of video gaming, he has given financial support to a network of young fledgling entrepreneurs specialising in this field and follows its progress very closely.
His vision of finance demonstrates an evident detachment from the world. According to him, this is “an advanced observatory of the economic world, which itself constitutes the main key to understanding the contemporary world.” This insatiable desire to discover and learn a little more about the society around him has given him the keys to be able to adapt to new markets and also to be successful with all the assignments entrusted to him and to lead his companies even further.
