Othoz in Berlin, which specializes in AI-based investment strategies, is taking a significant strategic step: Dr. Peter Oertmann will support the company's fortunes in future as an active shareholder and partner. The 54-year-old looks back on more than 30 years of experience as an investor and mentor for innovations in capital investment. He is one of the pioneers in the quantitative modelling of risk premiums and has founded and built up several companies, including the investment boutique Vescore. In addition, he held management positions for many years in asset management companies in Germany, Switzerland and Luxembourg as well as in investment committees of institutional investors and family businesses. Through his teaching positions at the Technical University of Munich and the University of Basel as well as his involvement in research-related organizations, he has a close connection to the development of knowledge in the field of capital investment.
"With his wealth of experience as an entrepreneur, his extraordinary expertise in quantitative asset management and his extensive network, Peter will greatly enrich our future path," announce Dr. Mathias Eitz and Dr. Daniel Willmann, co-founders and managing directors of the company. "Without the controlled use of AI, active asset management in our increasingly complex global financial markets will no longer be possible in the future. The Othoz team, with its outstanding skills at the interface between quantitative financial market analysis and machine learning, will play a key role in shaping the development of the industry," says Dr. Peter Oertmann, explaining his commitment to the company.

The interdisciplinary team from the fields of finance, computer and data science as well as mathematics, physics and neuroscience works on mapping the complex dynamics of influencing variables and interdependencies in financial markets in holistic models and combining them with the best practices of modern investment processes. Founded in 2017, the company is embedded in the worldwide development of knowledge in the field of artificial intelligence and is already one of the most important driving forces in the application area of asset management.
