RAM hires for Benelux/German sales coverage

BelgiumRAM Active Investments, an asset manager based in Switzerland that also has a Luxembourg Ucits business, has strengthened its sales team with the hire of Daniel Endres as senior sales manager for Germany and Benelux. Endres has ten years of industry experience and joins the firm from DNB Asset Management in Luxembourg. He also has held a sales role at SEB in the Grand Duchy. “Daniel will mainly develop our stance in the whole of the Benelux covering distribution and institutional investors. In Germany he will focus more specifically on the ‘B2B’ retail market, which is very decentralised throughout Germany,” said Pierre-Olivier Pourcelot, head of sales and marketing at the firm. RAM set up a Luxembourg branch in 2013 and counts Ucits equity long/short funds among its product range. The firm has assets under management of $3.8 billion (€3.4 billion), as at June 2015. ©2016 fund europe
