Andy Kastner

Andy Kastner is a fund manager managing European equity funds and mandates. Prior to joining GAM Group in July 2008 he worked as a fund manager for several theme and sector funds at Credit Suisse for seven years. Prior to that, he was an analyst and portfolio manager covering European equities at Bank Vontobel. Andy Kastner started his career at UBS in different functions in investment research and asset management. He holds a Master's degree in Banking and Finance from the University of Zurich and is a CFA and CAIA Charterholder. He is based in Zurich.


The fund seeks to achieve positive absolute returns, irrespective of the present market environment and at considerably lower volatility than equity markets. The fund invests (long and short) in liquid equities and equity-related securities of European companies. For the purpose of maintaining liquidity, the fund also holds a portfolio of short-term fixed-income investments. The fund is suitable for investors with a long-term horizon and medium to high risk tolerance who want to diversify their portfolio with an absolute-return strategy offering a low correlation with other asset classes.
