Investment Division

The Investment Division develops, manages, and controls investment solutions (funds and portfolios) for the asset classes “Fixed Income“, “Equities“, “Multi Asset Management“, and “Responsible Investments“.

Risk Management

Risk Management is responsible for the measuring and controlling of all risks in investment funds and portfolios associated with the specific products. Typically, this involves the determination and evaluation of market risks (value at risk, stress tests etc.), liquidity risks, and credit risks. The results of this evaluation are constantly reconciled with external (statutory) and internal regulations. In those cases, where the risk values are not in line with the respective risk profile of a fund or portfolio, immediate steps are demanded from the fund management team in charge.

Back Office

The Back Office consists of three departments:

  • „Tax and Fund Reporting“
  • „Investment Operations“
  • „Fund Operations“

It was newly set up in May 2014.

Our “Back Office CEE“ is the staff position of the Back Office and coordinates back office activities between the subsidiaries and Erste Asset Management.

Sales & Sales Support

Our Sales departments consist of Institutional Sales (International and Austria) and Retail Sales Austria. Whereas Institutional Sales deals with investment solutions for domestic and international clients such as pension funds, insurance companies, and groups of companies, Retail Sales Austria provides comprehensive advisory services to all Austrian retail sales partners.

Regulatory Functions
