MainFirst AM's Björn Esser to argue the contrarian approach at Nordic Summit

The ability for investors to benefit from irrational behaviour and mean reversion movements over the short term will be the focus of Björn Esser, portfolio manager at MainFirst Asset Management, when he attends the upcoming InvestmentEurope Nordic Summit Stockholm 2019, taking place 12-13 March at the Grand Hotel.

This approach arguably produces good results when fear or greed leads to further irrational behaviour by market participants, and Esser will demonstrate how use of a mean reversion strategy can make a portfolio more robust.

Esser has been a portfolio manager in the Multi Strategy Solutions Team at MainFirst since 2016. From 2010, he was a senior portfolio manager in the area of multi-asset at Allianz Global Investors and oversaw the wealth management family of funds, which had a final volume of almost €18bn. Esser studied at Gelsenkirchen University of Applied Sciences and is a graduate in Business Administration. He is also a Certified European Financial Analyst (CEFA) and Certified International Investment Analyst (CIIA). In addition, he lectures on the subject of assets in CIIA and AIM (Applied Investment Management) training courses.#
