Wednesday, April 10, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update: Tiberius, the Swiss investment manager known as a leading independent commodity specialist, has further enlarged its product offering by taking over the VCH Natural Resources Fund as of 1st April 2013. The fund which has about USD 60 Million in assets will be embedded into the research platform of Tiberius and benefit from its strong fundamental analysis. The fund complements the product range which already includes long only, long/short and global macro products.

We are convinced that our strong fundamental knowledge in combination with a solid bottom-up approach will lead to superior returns.”

Christoph Eibl further adds: “We are excited to reinforce our team with such an experienced and competent professional. Our new hire’s solid market expertise and proven ability to produce superior returns are key to helping us achieve our targets and to meet the expectations of our clients.”
