Under Henning Gebhardt, who came to Berenberg from DWS in 2017, the bank has greatly expanded its Wealth and Asset Management operations. “With fund managers like Matthias Born, Peter Kraus, Andreas Strobl and now Tim Albrecht, we have an outstanding team of investment experts to drive our growth, with unique expertise in German and European equities.
“The performance that our equity-team has achieved so far shows that we have taken the right path in building this team with an additional boost from this high-profile new hire.”
Discretionary funds and strategies are managed in Frankfurt, while quantitative strategies and overlay management are run from Hamburg.
