Former Merck Finck CIO joins AI-driven hedge fund Quantumrock
Quantumrock, an AI-driven investment manager based in Munich, has appointed Thomas Kemming as its Head of Institutional Client Relations.
Kemming has over 26 years of experience working in the asset management industry. He has held various positions ranging from securities specialist, to derivatives trader, and more recently as a portfolio manager and chief investment officer.
Kemming spent eleven years at Merck Finck working in senior leadership positions as their chief investment officer and later, head of professional clients. Before joining Merk Finck, Kemming spent seven years in derivatives sales and trading at HypoVereinsbank, and in the last three years set-up and established a private family office.
In his new role at Quantumrock, Kemming will be responsible for obtaining and keeping mandates with large family offices and institutional clients. He will further strengthen the already well-positioned DACH business around the experienced ex Merril Lynch, HVB, DB Private Wealth Management and former family office head, Nadine Korehnke.
Kemming, Head of Institutional Client Relations at Quantumrock says: “As a growing innovator in asset management using their approach to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, I’m excited to be joining Quantumrock at this stage of their journey. Quantumrock is an expert at providing high-level solutions to investors with high investment volumes. I look forward to joining a great team to help drive our client relationships across Germany and Europe.”
Stefan Tittel, CEO of Quantumrock, says: “After a record year for Quantumrock in 2020, it’s wonderful to have Thomas joining our group of specialists based in Munich. Having Thomas on board is fundamental to our growth strategy which is to continue to grow our client franchise in the institutional market and across family offices. With Thomas, it is safe to say that we have hired an expert with a track record of success in winning new mandates across DACH.”
