La Financière de l’Echiquier strengthens its Germany and Austria sales force

La Financière de l’Echiquier (LFDE) announces the strengthening of its sales force in Germany and Austria. The move is part of the strategy to accelerate international development led by Bettina Ducat, CEO of the asset management company, which has since the start of the year achieved 850 million in net inflows despite the ongoing crisis.

Jan Ostermann was appointed Sales Director for Germany and Austria on 1 October 2020. He will have special responsibility for western and northern Germany, reporting to John Korter, Country Manager.

LFDE has offered a range of equity, credit and multi-asset funds in Germany to distributors and institutional clients since 2007 and expanded into the Austrian market in 2015.

John Korter, Country Manager Germany and Austria, says:

We are delighted that Jan Ostermann has agreed to strengthen our team. His experience in the financial sector, proven competences and inter-personal skills will boost our dynamism and help support LFDE’s success and the quality of the high value added service offered in Germany and Austria.

Bettina Ducat, Chief Executive Officer of La Financière de l’Échiquier, commented:

La Financière de l’Echiquier has achieved particularly positive net inflows since the start of the year and some notable performances. This success fully deserves to be expanded. We are happy to offer our German and Austrian clients and partners the benefits of LFDE’s expertise and our dynamics
