Björn Glück named new partner at Lupus alpha

Partnership programme integrates top performers at the strategic level

Frankfurt, March 08th, 2022: Björn Glück (44) has been named a new partner at Lupus alpha. The manager of the multi-award-winning Lupus alpha Smaller German Champions fund has been part of the Lupus alpha portfolio management team, where he specialises in the German small and mid caps segment, since 2005. Björn Glück’s appointment signals the expansion of Lupus alpha’s partnership-based business concept. The aim of the Frankfurt-based asset manager’s partnership programme is to involve its top performers in the future development of the Company. The addition of Björn Glück means that Lupus alpha now has nine long-serving employees as partners.

“With his consistently exceptional performance over the past few years, Björn Glück has shown what active management can achieve and has made a decisive contribution to Lupus alpha’s success,” said Ralf Lochmüller, founding partner and CEO of Lupus alpha, of the latest addition to the Company’s partner ranks. “As a responsible portfolio manager of a Germany-focused fund, he demonstrates the high level of alpha expertise that set our investment strategies apart as an asset management company,” Lochmüller added.

Lupus alpha’s partnership-based corporate structure offers partners the opportunity to actively participate in the strategic development of the Company and take part directly in its continued growth. “We want to continue expanding our partner ranks in future to include employees who particularly embody the commitment to performance at Lupus alpha and are helping to decisively shape our corporate culture,” said Lochmüller. In addition to Executive Committee members Dr. Götz Albert, Michael Frick, Ralf Lochmüller, Alexander Raviol and Dr. Markus Zuber, there are now a total of four other long-term employee partners at Lupus alpha.

Björn Glück began his professional career in the small and mid caps team at Lupus alpha in 2005 after completing his studies in economics at Goethe University Frankfurt. Glück focused on the German small and mid caps segment from an early stage. In 2009 he was named co-manager of the portfolio management team for the Lupus alpha Smaller German Champions fund, and became responsible for the strategic management of this multi-award-winning Germany-focused fund in April 2012. Since then, the fund has achieved an average performance of 14.8 per cent per year, with a cumulative outperformance of more than 104 per cent (LU0129233507, 01/04/2012 – 28/02/2022, benchmark: 50% MDAX and 50% SDAX).
