He started his career in the asset management department of Cologne-based private bank Sal. Oppenheim, subsequently leaving for the multi-billion Euro Degussa Pension Fund where he became CIO.

The fund invests in different fixed assets. The aim is to replicate the risk profile of high yield portfolios (= portfolios of bonds with high coupon rate, but high credit risk) using equity derivatives. The aim is to achieve a better risk-return ratio to traditional high-yield portfolios, particularly in phases of extreme market disparities in combination with considerable potential risk potential and a more favorable liquidity structure.
