Dr. Burkhard Poschadel (70) has retired as Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Prime Capital AG by the end of July.

He has provided valuable input in defining the company’s strategy and in expanding individual divisions. For his commitment and wise advice I thank him by heart”, said company founder and CEO Wolfgang Stolz.

At the same time, Alfred Möckel (59) takes over the role as Chairman of the Supervisory Board. The founder and former CEO of Consors Capital Bank AG, former Board member at Consors Discount Broker AG, BHF Bank, Morgan Stanley Bank AG, as well as former Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Frankfurt Trust and supervisory board member of Deutsche Börse AG has been a member of the Supervisory Board of Prime Capital AG since 2007.

He is therefore an ideal consultant for the further development of our asset management business, especially in the areas of Absolute Return strategies and Liquid Alternatives, which is one of our core areas. We have intensified our efforts in the segment of liquid Absolute Return strategies in recent years, have set up investment funds and have thus achieved an innovative extension to our traditional hedge fund strategies”, explains Wolfgang Stolz.
