Redington has appointed Torsten Köpke as a Director in its Global Assets team, as it continues to expand its client base across Europe.
Köpke is an internationally trusted adviser and brings more than twenty years’ experience in investment strategy and governance structure. Throughout his career he has worked with and advised C-suite executives at a number of asset managers, insurance companies and investment consultants, including roles at Aon Hewitt, Willis Towers Watson and FERI. Most recently he served as Managing Director at Silverfern, the New York-based private equity firm.
Köpke joined Redington permanently at the end of 2019, with an initial focus on growing its presence in Germany. His appointment is representative of the firm’s dedication to continue growing its European and international client base.
In 2018 the firm announced appointments by Norwegian wealth manager Forvaltningshuset as its investment adviser, and Icelandic securities firm Fossar Markets, to whom it provides access to Redington’s leading global investment manager research platform.
Announcing the appointment, Pete Drewienkiewicz, CIO-Global Assets at Redington, said: “As we continue to grow our global presence, I have every confidence that Torsten’s insight will be invaluable. With experience in asset management at an executive level – both as an adviser and a leader in his own right – Torsten has a close and revealing understanding of investors’ needs and of the regulatory frameworks in which we operate. He is a proven force, a trusted voice and a welcome part of the Redington team.”
Commenting on his new position, Köpke said: “Redington has more than met my expectations of a forward-thinking, open-minded and inspired firm whose culture is as striking as its capabilities. By relishing a challenge, embracing new technology and always searching for alternative solutions, I’m excited to be working as part of the Global Assets team as we take this business and its ethos into different regions, new markets and new opportunities.”
