In 1989, he moved to Chase Manhattan Bank where he was managing director of Chase’s Investment Company in Vienna and was responsible for fund management and derivatives trading. In 1995 he set up MOC Asset Management in Vienna together with Franz Hartlieb. From 1997 to 2001 he was a managing director of MOC Limited in Gibraltar.
