PGIM Investments is expanding its distribution footprint throughout Europe, adding a team dedicated to Germany.
The firm has hired as vice president Thiemo Volkholz, who will be based in Frankfurt and focused on growing the firm’s presence with global, regional and local banks and financial intermediaries throughout the region. Together with Cvjetko Zecevic, hired as assistant vice president, the team will market PGIM’s asset management capabilities including PGIM funds throughout the region.
Volkholz and Zecevic’s arrival represent the next step in the growth of PGIM Investments’ European operations. These hires mark PGIM Investment’s second dedicated team in Europe, with plans to add two additional regional teams in Europe by early 2019. The team will report to Kimberly LaPointe, executive vice president and head of global accounts.
Both Volkholz and Zecevic join the firm from Capital Group, where Volkholz was a managing director responsible for relationships with banks, wealth managers and multi-family offices. He has more than a decade of investment industry experience, including roles at MainFirst Asset Management, JPMorgan and Helaba Landesbank Hessen-Thüringen.
Zecevic was a business development associate covering financial intermediaries, global financial institutions, banks, multi-family offices, independent asset managers and IFAs.
