Claudio Zampa

Claudio Virgilio Zampa grew up in a traditional village located in the North East of Italy. From a young age, his parents provided him with a broad cultural exposure uncommon in his native social environment. As a child, Claudio was sent to boarding school Collegio di Toppo-Wassermann in Udine and eventually earned a degree in Finance at Bocconi University in Milano, Italy.

Growing up in Friuli, where his family has lived since the 13th century,  Claudio was influenced by the region’s history and values of integrity and hard work. These regional values are now at the heart of his own personal philosophy. His personal experience and upbringing also taught him the life-changing impact of education and how to interact with individuals of all backgrounds.

Since 1987, Claudio has worked in finance – first in investment banking in Milan and later at Bank of America in London as of Head of Euro Interest Rate Trading and Proprietary Group. Since 2000 he has been the Founder and CIO of Mangart Capital, a hedge fund specializing in macro-investments.

Claudio Zampa is the Chairman of Il Villaggio della Musica, a foundation that supports an international meeting place: Sobrio, a Swiss mountain village, where young musicians can study in an ideal environment, far from cities and in touch with nature.

He is the father of seven children and lives in Switzerland with his family.
