Alexander Kapfer

Alexander Kapfer, CFA is the advisor on the SQUAD Makro Fund. He studied Business Administration at LMU Munich University, focusing mainly on capital market analysis and accounting, and joined a Munich based asset manager straight after graduating in 1999. He advised a global equity fund between June 2004 and June 2009 and was awarded fund manager of the year in 2009 for Germany and Austria by Citywire. In 2010 he founded his own investment boutique. His investment process focuses on two stages. On the basis of macro analysis he determines the risk-reward profile of the equity markets and the attractiveness of different investment regions and sectors. This leads to an investment exposure between 0% and 100% which is considered appropriate for the risk-reward environment of the markets. On the stock level he invests in stocks based on a value approach. Kapfer is now a Chartered Financial Analyst and fund manager, but as a boy he was a keen footballer who played for the mighty Bayern Munich for five years.
