Fisch Asset Management expands Executive Committee, appointing Meno Stroemer as new Head of Portfolio Management
Fisch Asset Management, which specialises in convertible bond, corporate bond and absolute return solutions, is further aligning its management structure with its plans for growth. Meno Stroemer, who already heads the corporate bond team, has assumed additional responsibility for all of Portfolio Management with effect from 1 April 2019 and has also joined the Executive Committee. This appointment underscores the objective of Co-CEOs Philipp Good and Juerg Sturzenegger to strengthen the Executive Committee by bringing on board further experts.
Philipp Good, who was Head of Portfolio Management since 1 January 2016, said the following about the personnel change: “Portfolio Management is the firm’s nucleus and, as such, is essential for Fisch Asset Management to evolve successfully. With Meno Stroemer in the position, we will have a proven and recognised investment expert as Head of Portfolio Management. Meno Stroemer has been with the company since 2014, and has a track record of successfully developing departments, first as head of securities trading and Middle Office, and later as head of the corporate bond team. In his new position he will hone the firm’s investment processes, further build out our research capability, and implement our substantial investments in state-of-the-art technology within Portfolio Management.” Good will in future focus on further developing the market, product and distribution strategies together with our efforts in the direction of international expansion.
Expanding the management structure is an important step towards achieving its ambitious growth targets and reaching the level of internationalisation to which the firm aspires. The growth in both assets under management and the number of employees requires an optimised management and governance structure. Pius Fisch, co-founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors, said this about the step: “Over the past few years, we have been making the firm future-ready. With the appointment of Meno Stroemer to the Executive Committee in this, our 25th year, we continue to move forward in this process and underscore our ambitions.”
