Until now, Katja Müller (41) had managed the private label fund business with fund initiators, independent asset managers and international asset managers. In her new role she will report directly to the Spokesman of the Management Board, Bernd Vorbeck. “We offer our clients a unique range of services and products, from structuring through administration up to risk management, across all asset classes in Germany and Luxembourg,” says Bernd Vorbeck. “As a proven sectoral expert, Katja Müller has all the prerequisites to use this 360-degree strategy to focus the business even more heavily on our diverse client groups and their requirements.” Universal-Investment currently has €257 billion in assets under administration, €13 billion more than one year ago.
Before she joined Universal-Investment in March 2014, Katja Müller had worked for 12 years at Deutsche Bank. Among other things, she had worked for 10 years for Deutsche Asset Management (DeAM) in various functions. Most recently, she had been Managing Director and Head of Fiduciary Management Platform, into which the areas of Master KVG, private label, Investment-AG and company pension plans have been amalgamated. In the course of the consolidation of the three divisions, the previous Head of the Institutional division, Ralf Bräuer, and the previous Head of Insourcing, Jörg Kaden, decided to leave Universal-Investment.
