Raiffeisen’s Thomas Korhammer to join Pan-Nordic Summit
Thomas Korhammer, senior fund manager at Raiffeisen Capital Management is set to discuss opportunities around European high yield assets when he takes part in the upcoming Pan-Nordic Summit Stockholm, hosted by InvestmentEurope 14-15 March.
Korhammer will discuss how, adjusted for Sharpe ratios, high yield credit in the eurozone offers relatively good potential against investment grade credit. The manager has been invested in the asset class since 1999, using a bottom-up process, while Korhammer tends to focus on automotive, cyclical and non-cyclical consumer and services sectors across both high yield and investment grade markets.
Korhammer joined Raiffeisen Capital Management in 2000, since when he has been responsible for the management of fixed income portfolios. As a senior fund manager and strategist of the Corporate Bonds team he is jointly responsible for the credit strategies. Besides his role as lead fund manager of the Raiffeisen-European-HighYield fund, he manages several mutual funds and institutional mandates. In his career he has been responsible for portfolio management, research and trading activities in global credit markets including euro, US and emerging markets.
Prior to joining Raiffeisen Capital Management Korhammer gained experience in several business operations at Raiffeisen Landesbank Niederösterreich Wien. He holds a master’s degree in Business administration from the University of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschule Wr. Neustadt), where he specialised in Investments and Corporate Finance as well as in Marketing & Sales Management and wrote his thesis on behavioral finance.
