Ossiam hires product specialist for German-speaking countries


Ossiam, the smart beta specialist fund manager and affiliate of Natixis Global Asset Management (Natixis), has expanded its team with the appointment of Mirko Jungmann as product specialist for Austria, Switzerland and Germany.

Prior to joining Ossiam, Jungmann was a senior consultant at Capco Germany, and a senior investment consultant at Mercer Investments (Germany), where he advised clients on long-term investment strategies and asset manager selection for single mandates.
Earlier in his career he was an investment specialist in the asset management division of Öffentliche Versicherung* Braunschweig from 2008 to 2012, where portfolio optimisation of the insurance company’s active-passive exposure and benchmarking were areas of particular focus for him.
Jungmann is a CFA charterholder and doctoral candidate at the Institute of Finance at Technische Universität Braunschweig. He is a graduate in aerospace engineering and business management of the Technische Universität Braunschweig. For this role, Jungmann is based in Frankfurt (a.M.), where he will support the Natixis distribution team.
Bruno Poulin, CEO of Ossiam, says: “We warmly welcome Mirko to the Ossiam team, where he will increase our coverage of German-speaking markets. These countries are advanced in their demand for both ETFs and smart beta investment strategies. Mirko is highly qualified and experienced in understanding these investors’ requirements, particularly in the institutional community, and identifying how Ossiam strategies could meet their investment objectives. He will also contribute to future product development based on demand from investors in  these markets.”
Joerg Knaf, Executive Managing Director at Natixis Global Asset Management – DACH Countries, said, “The addition of a German-speaking product specialist in Frankfurt underscores the significance of the DACH region to Natixis’s effort to increase its footprint in the local market, and greatly improves our service-offering in the German-speaking region.  Our clients have expressly asked for German-speaking investment specialists and the addition of Mirko very clearly expresses our commitment to serving the needs of the local investor community.”
Ossiam’s total assets under management were EUR2.5 billion (GBP2.2 billion) as of 30 June, 2017, including exchange-traded funds and direct mandates.
