Well positioned: our company
The DJE Group is one of the leading independent wealth and asset managers in German-speaking Europe.
Based in Pullach in the suburbs of Munich, DJE also has offices in Cologne, Frankfurt and Zurich as well as its own fund management entity in Luxembourg responsible for the Group’s retail and institutional funds. Having founded the business in 1974, and now with a team of around 145 staff, Dr. Jens Ehrhardt pursues absolute returns over the long term, and is free from all benchmark constraints.
The Group attracts institutional investors, such as Banks, Insurers, Pension Funds, Trusts and Corporates from Germany and abroad, as well as private investors. All are drawn by the team's distinctive value-oriented investment strategy and successful track record which has won numerous fund management industry awards.
DJE's team manages assets approximately € 11,7 billion as of 31/01/2020 in around 50 mutual and institutional investment funds as well as individual portfolios of equities and bonds. These are marketed in DJE's own name or white-labelled for domestic and non-German entities including a number of market-leading institutions.
A key element behind DJE's success lies in the firm's innovative product development and reliance on its own resources and investment methodology. DJE has one of the largest research teams outside the banking industry in Germany. These in-house experts are noted for a prudent management approach which, for example, helped DJE produce competitive returns for clients in 2000 and 2001 while other managers were suffering significant losses. Even in the current difficult market conditions, the group's consistent investment approach has retained clients' assets more successfully then their competition.
