Unigestion is expanding its presence in Germany with the opening of an office in Düsseldorf.
The opening of the new unit forms part of Unigestion's growth strategy and focus on building its distribution capabilities in the region. It will be home to Unigestion's dedicated German sales team, providing better access to current investors and prospective clients.
The Düsseldorf-based team, to be led by Unigestion's head of Institutional Clients for Germany and Austria Florian Rehm, will serve institutional investors and intermediaries, offering customised investment solutions and key strategies including equities, multi asset, alternative risk premia and private equity.
Fiona Frick, chief executive officer, said: "Unigestion has had a longstanding presence in Germany and is now better positioned to serve this important European market. Düsseldorf is an international business and financial centre and home to a number of Unigestion investors, so is a great hub for the team to be based in as we look to grow in Germany."
Florian Rehm, head of Institutional Clients for Germany and Austria, added: "Germany has a well-established investment market and the office opening reinforces our commitment to serving German investors. A local presence will allow us to strengthen existing relationships, broaden our investor base and work more closely with investors looking for unique investment solutions."
