André Böttcher

Portfolio Manager

To be successful in investing, you need various analytical skills but most importantly an open mind about changes in the world. I have proven that I can work hard and systematically to identify rewarding investments and build a strong track record. I am particularly proud to have been among the Portfolio Managers for a fund which received the Euro Hedge Fund Management Award in 2017 for the best risk-adjusted returns over 10 years.

André started his career in Corporate Finance / M&A at Deutsche Bank with the focus on origination and execution of various international M&A advisory projects in industrial, construction, automotive and aerospace industries. André was able to close seven transactions during his time at Deutsche Bank. He then moved to the Buy Side as Investment Analyst and Portfolio Manager and had roles at various Hedge Funds (Focus Capital, Limmat Capital) where he gained fundamental analysis, financial modelling, security selection and portfolio management skills for long and short equity investments across various sectors and regions. André engages in regular discussions with corporate management teams about business drivers and potential value creating strategic steps.

André holds a degree in Business Administration from Humboldt University, Berlin with the main subjects: Corporate Finance, Entrepreneurship and Innovations.
