Tindaro Siragusano, head of Asset Management at Berenberg comments on his appointment: “We have ambitious growth plans and Switzerland continues to be a key market within continental Europe which we would like to convince of our quantiative investment solutions and risk management strategies.”
“Institutional investors appreciate Berenberg’s approach to risk management of client portfolios and its product range, its experience as currency manager in particular is worth highlighting in the Swiss context” Zeppenfeld adds.
