Dr Schlumberger has been a managing director of BHF Trust Management Gesellschaft für Vermögensverwaltung mbH since 2001 with overall responsibility for conventional and individual asset management services.

“The asset management services headed up by Dr Schlumberger has constantly ranked among the top performers for more than a decade. In conjunction with our multi-award-winning private banking advisory services, we boast an outstanding all-round offer for our clients,” says Dr Hans-Walter Peters, spokesman for the Managing Partners of Berenberg.

“I’m really looking forward to a new challenge at Germany’s oldest private bank, which has a reputation for being one of the most dynamic and ambitious players in the market,” says Schlumberger. “My goal is to keep Berenberg’s Private Banking moving forward by constantly providing strong performance.”
