Cars­ten Straush President

Cars­ten Straush began his career after finis­hing his exame in ban­king and finance at Colo­gne uni­ver­sity with the lea­ding German publis­hing group in the sector deve­lo­ping inno­va­tive ban­king ana­ly­sis pro­ducts, orga­ni­zing and teaching in semi­nars and work­shops and publis­hing actively about ways to ana­lyse the stock mar­kets. Mid-90s he swit­ched to active port­fo­lio manage­ment using deri­va­tive pro­ducts exten­si­vely. 1998 he incor­po­ra­ted German Asset Mana­gers AG, which then issued the first index-linked note in Ger­many and pionee­red the con­cept of actively mana­ged indi­ces. 2001 the second inno­va­tion was brought to the market, the Black+White-Certificate, an index-linked note based on a port­fo­lio of hedge funds and alpha-ori­en­ted stra­te­gies. Thus GAMAG was a first mover in cate­ring hedge funds to the pri­vate investor in Ger­many.
