#RedPin series / ONE profile: Tobias Ettlin - Partner, ONE consult
After graduating from the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland, I packed up my bags and moved to New York City where I found a job in the compliance department of a large US bank. I liked the versatility and varied nature of the work.
After a few years, I moved to a large US asset management firm. It was the height of the financial crisis and compliance had become a strategic role, much more than a pure control function. When I was asked to build the compliance program for a new European headquarters of the firm, I couldn’t resist and moved to London. In my role as Chief Compliance Officer for EMEA, I oversaw several Luxembourg-domiciled investment funds.
In my frequent travels to the Grand Duchy, I got to know the local industry, was able to build a local network and met, among others, Revel Wood and Steve Bernat. I was thrilled to be asked to be a day-one partner of ONE group solutions.
I moved to Luxembourg to join the ONE family and immediately felt at home. Today I’m in charge of the group’s compliance program and our compliance advisory services through ONE consult.
I’m proud to be part of the ONE adventure.
