Christian Diebitsch joins Heptagon Capital

HiredHeptagon Capital has hired Christian Diebitsch following investor calls for a European equity product with the same type of investment approach he has used for ten years. Swedish born Diebitsch has 24 years of experience in the European equity markets to bring to his new role with the London-based US$9 billion (€6.8 billion) specialist asset manager. He joins Heptagon from Seilern Investment Management, where he managed the Morningstar 5-Star rated Stryx Europa Fund, which has returned 73.46% over the past three years. Diebitsch started his career at Swedish trading house Axel Johnson in 1989, and then moved into European equity analysis in London for firms such as BNP Paribas and Kleinwort Benson. In 2004 he became a portfolio manager and analyst working for WP Stewart & Co in London. This appointment follows other recent changes for Heptagon, which joined together with Harvest Global Investments earlier this month to launch an actively managed Ucits fund investing in Chinese A-shares. ©2014 funds europe
