Angestellt, Sales & Marketing Manager, Gardner Finance AG

Zug, Schweiz


I am Sales and Marketing Manager for Gardner Finance AG
a specialist in the natural resources investment sector. With our joint venture partner Credit Suisse
we have created and launched a series of active and passive commodity and natural resources indices. Our Global Energy MacroIndex (GEMI) was the first to be launched in April 2005
and is truly unique in the market place thanks to its strategy and composition. Gardner was the first to market with an energy focussed fund of hedge funds
called GEMI Ltd. It is the largest energy fund of hedge funds in the industry. Its objective is to track the Gardner MacroIndex and provide a macro view on global energy markets. It is a breakthrough value proposition and enhances portfolio volatility parameters by providing true portfolio diversification. We are now actively marketing the GEMI Fund and in addition
are working on a number of exciting
innovative products that we plan to launch in 2008
