HQ AM appoints Sal. Oppenheim investment chief

HQ Asset Management has expanded quant team that provides institutional investors with quantitative, globally-focused cash management portfolio management. HQ Asset Management has appointed Lars Edler as new chief investment officer, and seven new employees are already working under him.

Edler, who was investment director at Sal. Oppenheim, has extensive experience in the new and further development of investment processes and as a portfolio manager. “It’s the perfect time to build quantitative, bank-independent asset management for institutional and semi-institutional investors. Due to the continuing uncertainty on the capital markets, the focus of many investors is increasingly shifting towards transparent, comprehensible investment decision-making processes,” said Edler.
Quantitative Researcher Andreas Fuest, Christian Maschner, Benjamin Moritz and Philipp Finter join from Sal. Oppenheim, who recently headed the seven-member research team for quantitative allocation strategies for equities, bonds and commodities at the Cologne-based bank. At HQ Asset Management, Finter is appointed as executive partner in Capital Markets Research.

Julia Groth joins HQ Asset Management from the Deutsche Apotheker- und Ärztebank. Wasja Lampe comes from Bankhaus Lampe. Groth most recently worked as senior multi-asset portfolio manager. Lampe was portfolio manager in Wealth Management. Further new additions are to follow.
