Jan van Eck, CEO of VanEck
VanEck (Europe) today announced that the firm has restructured its European fund businesses uniting the international business development and sales teams. Previously organised as separate businesses, both exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and actively managed strategies will now be represented by one team under the leadership of Uwe Eberle, Head of International Business Development and Distribution. In his new role, Mr. Eberle will be responsible for expanding and enhancing VanEck’s client relationships. He is supported by international teams in Switzerland, Germany, Spain, and China.
“We are aligning the firm’s team structure worldwide to accommodate the needs of both our clients and our expanding global business. Uwe’s extensive expertise and in-depth knowledge of the international investment community will play a pivotal role in developing both our product line-ups and our client relationships outside the United States,” said Jan van Eck, CEO of VanEck.
“I am excited about the opportunities that a consolidated client management will offer to investors in Europe, Asia, Middle East and South America,” said Uwe Eberle. “Combining the expertise of both teams will create a setup that positions us to respond most flexibly to investors’ needs with a wide range of investment solutions,” he added.
Mr. Eberle has been with VanEck since 2010 when he joined the firm as Managing Director for Switzerland where he has been responsible for the development and distribution of the VanEck actively managed funds in international markets. Prior to joining VanEck, Uwe Eberle held various leadership roles at Man Investments.
