Company history: Pioneering work since 1993
The current Lingohr Asset Management GmbH, formerly known as Lingohr & Partner Asset Management GmbH, was founded in 1993 by Frank R. Lingohr with the support of two long-time companions. As managing director, Frank R. Lingohr was responsible for advising high net worth individuals and family offices as well as for setting up and managing several mutual funds.
Since the beginning of the 1990s, Mr. Lingohr has focused on extensive data analysis and stock selection based on fundamental metrics. He is thus one of the pioneers in the German asset management industry. At the same time, he has been an advocate of value investing and disciplined process orientation throughout his career. The equal weighting of individual stocks was also one of his trademarks. These core elements continue to form central building blocks of today's investment philosophy.
In 2003, Michael Broszeit joined the company as managing partner. He built up the institutional business in Germany as well as abroad and thus left a lasting mark on the company's orientation. Following the death of founder Frank R. Lingohr in 2015, Goran Vasiljevic joined the management team as Chief Investment Officer and Steffen Ulshöfer as Chief Operating Officer. Since July 1, 2022, Dyrk Vieten serves as the Speaker of the Management Board (CEO).
They jointly manage Lingohr Asset Management GmbH on behalf of the owner Amauris Invest GmbH. The Düsseldorf-based investment company acquired all shares in the company in April 2022. Lingohr CEO Dyrk Vieten is also managing director and shareholder of Amauris Invest GmbH and the main initiator of the takeover. For him, the transaction has closed a circle. In his role at Deka Vermögensmanagement, he had closely supported Frank R. Lingohr in launching the "Lingohr Systematic" fund family and successfully introducing it to the market. The new shareholder will consistently continue the almost 30-year success story of Lingohr.
