  MainFirst hires new fund management team for innovative multi-asset strategies

MainFirst has recruited multi-asset experts Björn Esser, Dr Timo Teuber and Christian Schütz. Since the 1st of July, these experts are adding to the strengths of MainFirst Asset Management. The independent European financial services provider is thereby reacting to the increasing demand for multi-asset solutions and will offer new investment opportunities in this area.

Frankfurt/Main, 4 th July 2016 – 

MainFirst recruits the experienced portfolio managers Björn Esser, Dr Timo Teuber and Christian Schütz to help cover the multi-asset sector. With immediate effect, they will be adding to the strengths of the successful multi-asset team around Frank Schwarz and Adrian Daniel and will, above all, be responsible for innovative asset management, alternative investments and global multi-asset allocation.

“We are delighted to have been able to attract three such well-respected fund managers for the expansion of our multi-asset team”, says Oliver Haseley, Head of the Asset Management division at MainFirst. Together, the three experts share almost 40 years of experience in asset management. Before coming to MainFirst, Esser, Teuber and Schütz were Senior Portfolio Managers at Allianz Global Investors.

“By integrating alternative investments together with global macro-strategies, we are reacting to the growing investor demand for such investment strategies”, reports Haseley. With interest rates at record lows and with low yields, many investors would like to achieve attractive capital returns independently of fixed income returns. Professional investors as well as private investors are increasingly implementing these kinds of multi-asset solutions as their core investments. Due to the persistence of this low interest period, it is to be expected that this trend will continue.
