Bela von Merey founded a start-up during his bachelor studies at the University of St. Gallen (HSG). This start-up provided companies with high quality content, mainly for their web presence. After about one and a half years, Bela left the venture and gained some experience in financial markets while completing his Masters Degree in Accounting & Finance at HSG. Following an internship in Hong Kong at a Chinese long-only equity fund and almost two years at a Zurich-based investment boutique (Singularity Group), Bela joined the Aktionariat team as a Customer Success Manager on 1 September 2021. Today, he is responsible for sales and marketing as Chief Growth Officer.
