Several new appointments have been made to strengthen the European business team of Standard Life Investments. Dirk Tiemann will be based in Frankfurt as the new investment director for semi-institutional (wholesale) sales in Germany and Austria.
Teimann will be teaming up in Frankfurt with another relatively new appointee, Frank Richter, who was established as investment director for institutional sales in the same territories earlier this year. Standard Life Investments says these two are tasked with ensuring clients have the right investment solutions for their needs, whilst developing and expanding new business opportunities across both countries.
Two new business development managers have also been appointed which brings the Edinburgh-based team to 13. Alan Simpson has responsibility for new business in Germany and the Nordics, while Abilio da Rocha looks after Switzerland and Southern Europe.
Speaking of the expectations from the German market, Asa Norrire, co-head of European Business said, “In recent years we have seen investor demand escalate in Germany for our fixed income product range along with our innovative absolute return solutions, so we intend to build on this solid base and develop opportunities for growth.”
