Oliver Fischer (li.) und Uwe Lippert

Oliver Fisher has been a part of Universal-Investment since early February. The sales professional handles the sales of the fund in the investment house. The 50-year-old formerly worked at Canadian company Fiera Capital for seven years. He led the fund business in Germany and Austria (General Manager Germany and Austria). Prior to this, Fisher also worked for FPM Frankfurt Performance Management, First Private Investment Management and the asset management arm of Citigroup.

Uwe Lippert is also new to Universal-Investment. The 39-year-old started the year as senior sales manager. Lippert moved from asset manager Metzler Asset Management, for whom he had previously worked as director of the department for institutional sales in Europe. In the past, Lippert also worked for HDI Lebensversicherung and insurance group Axa.

Plans to expand further

Universal-Investment’s fund sales team currently consists of five people, with two newcomers. According to the company this should be increased to eight employees in the future. The Frankfurt-based company strives to become “the largest European fund services platform and management company for all asset classes”.

According to its own information, the company managed 50 billion euros for the fund initiator at the end of 2020. The category of fast-managed funds includes products for institutional investors. Last year alone, more than 35 billion euros flowed into funds that work closely with universal-investment individual fund creators and institutional investors.

Universal-Investment operates a fund services platform and provides support to external fund operators, including framework services and private label funds as Master KVG.
