„Less risk, more fun.“



Born 1968


Tell us a little about yourself as a trader.
In my 30 years of stock market experience, I have familiarised myself
with all aspects of trading, among other things as a market maker, proprietary trader and director of a securities trading bank.
Nowadays, I focus primarily on the development of portfolio
models, overlay mandates and risk management.

What training do you have in the area of finance and do you have any specific qualifications?
I initially trained as a bank clerk, and I followed this up with
internal and external courses and personal vocational training.
The highlights for me were undoubtedly the supplementary training in derivative products at the renowned International Trading Institute
in Chicago and, later, my bank manager qualification.

How did you end up in the capital market?
I was able to garner some initial experience on the Frankfurt Stock
Exchange while training as a bank clerk, and this laid the foundations
for my career path. In 1991, I was among the first generation of
traders on the German futures exchange (Eurex).
