Senior Portfolio Manager
My life before Fisch Asset Management
Having developed a strong interest in economics and the financial markets at a very young age, I decided to study business administration at Vienna University of Economics and Business. Since I believe that new ideas and the financial markets are among the most fascinating areas of an economy, I chose to focus on investment banking and catallactics as well as on entrepreneurship and innovation. I also spent a semester abroad at a highly renowned university in Bangkok. My empirical diploma thesis looked at the dominant influence factors of innovativeness in small and mid-sized companies and was nominated for the Talenta Award 2007. During my studies, I worked largely as a business graphics analyst for Roland Berger Strategy Consultants while also engaging in various other projects (founding member of a cultural association, basic training in adult education…). Following my studies, I had the opportunity to pursue my passion for the capital markets as a junior portfolio manager in the multi-asset area of a large Austrian bank. During nearly my last eight years there, I worked as the lead portfolio manager for a number of portfolios.
My duties at Fisch Asset Management
I am a multi-asset portfolio manager.
When I'm not working, then ...
I enjoy spending time with friends, playing tennis, reading various asset allocation and Cran-R blogs, searching a lot of trivia on Wikipedia, travelling the world and occupying myself with some of the more sensible and less sensible things in life.
What significance do "fish" have in my life?
They are an excellent example of collective intelligence. Regardless of size, each fish contributes independently and equally to making the group move in the right direction.
