My life before Fisch Asset Management
After I had finished my legal studies, I specialized in international law. Then I spent two years in Hamburg while completing my doctoral thesis and after the bar exams I worked in the field of intellectual property. From 1989 to 1994, I worked at the International Division of Zurich Insurance. Our unit was responsible for the development and market launch of new insurance products for multinational companies.
My duties at Fisch Asset Management
My responsibilities have shifted since I stepped down from the Executive Committee at the end of 2017. The role of Chairman of the Board of Directors is becoming more central. Now that I’ve been relieved of my executive duties, I have more time for strategic tasks. My goal is to establish optimal processes in the relationship between strategic and operational leadership. As regards business operations, I will continue to support Legal, Compliance and Risk Management.
When I'm not working, then ...
My wife and I like staying in, reading and cooking – I enjoy having nothing to do. Though I’m still enamoured with golf, and plan to continue improving my game. My other interests include politics, sport and literature.
What significance do "fish" have in my life?
I cannot deny a relatively close relationship with fish. As a child, my last name was a perfect highlight for the others to make jokes about. But already as a youth, the satisfaction of having a more interesting name than Müller or Meier outweighed the drawbacks.
