Company history: Pioneering work since 1993
Lingohr & Partner Asset Management GmbH was founded in 1993 by Frank R. Lingohr with the support of two long-standing companions. As managing director, Mr. 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.
Michael Broszeit joined the company as managing partner in 2003. He built up the institutional business in Germany and abroad and thus had a lasting influence on the strategic direction of the company.
The generational change was initiated in 2015 and completed in 2017. With Goran Vasiljevic and Steffen Ulshöfer, two employees who were prepared for this task over many years now lead the business in the new generation.
The company is privately owned by its founders and their successors as well as long-time partners of the company.
