JO Hambro Capital Management (JOHCM) is moving to strengthen its position in the German investment market with the launch of a Munich office.
The London-headquartered fund house has instated head of distribution for the UK, Europe and Asia, TJ Voskamp, at the new German location, alongside head of intermediary sales for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, Annabelle Wegner and sales manager, DACH, Marco Maier.
Wegner and her team will focus on major wholesale and institutional clients from the banking, insurance, wealth management, family office and pension sectors, according to the firm.
Products will span global equities, multi-asset, and thematic impact.
“The establishment of the German location is an important part of JOHCM's growth plans in continental Europe. Germany is one of Europe’s largest and most diverse asset management markets and represents a very exciting prospect for us,” said Voskamp.
Germany overtook the UK as the most shorted country in Europe in September, according to data from SEI Novus.
The German Dax is down 19.9% year-to-date, while the Euronext 100 is down 15%.
“In numerous conversations with my clients, I hear how high the need is for convincing investment concepts in difficult stock market times,” said Wegner. “I am pleased that we can now listen and engage in dialogue even better on site.”
