Macquarie Investment Management (MIM), part of the asset management arm of Macquarie Group, has appointed Markus Rottler as Head of Distribution for the German professional buyer market.
Based in Munich, Markus will introduce Macquarie’s broad range of investment capabilities to professional buyers in the German market.
Markus brings more than 12 years of asset management experience to his new role. Prior to joining Macquarie, Markus spent 5 years at Columbia Threadneedle, focusing on both the professional buyer and institutional client segments. Prior to that, he spent 7 years at Pioneer Investments in various portfolio management and client facing roles.
Head of Distribution for MIM EMEA, Steve Haswell, said: “Markus is a very welcome addition to our German distribution team. The German professional buyers market is not an area that we have historically covered, so we are very pleased to have someone with Markus’ experience in the market to launch our efforts in this key market segment.”
Commenting on his appointment, Markus said: “Macquarie’s investment management capabilities are well aligned with German investors. I am looking forward to introducing new German professional clients to all that Macquarie has to offer.”
