With his expertise, he will support the company's national and international growth.

"His more than 25 years of experience in the asset management industry as well as in key account support in various positions make Roman the ideal person for the newly created position," commented Katja Müller, Chief Customer Officer of Universal Investment.

The Universal Investment Group remains on a strong growth path. At the end of the fiscal year in September 2021, assets under administration amounted to 710 billion euros, which means an increase of around a third within just one year.
