DWS is strengthening its multi-asset team with the appointment of Hartwig Kos, who is joining DWS based in Frankfurt.

Currently Co-Head of Multi Asset & Vice CIO at SYZ Asset Management in London, Kos (pictured), is a highly regarded industry expert who has deep international experience as a multi-asset portfolio manager.
 
Prior to joining SYZ, Kos held various positions at Baring Asset Management, most recently as Investment Director of Global Multi Asset Group. At DWS he will lead the Multi Asset Allocation team. He will report directly to Christian Hille, Global Head of Multi Asset & Solutions.
 
Stefan Kreuzkamp, co-head of DWS’ investment platform and member of the Executive Board, wrote to employees in May this year highlighting that DWS regards Multi Asset as one of the major global industry trends. According to data from the Investment Association (IA), net retail purchases of multi-asset funds in 2017 in the UK alone reached EUR14.9 billion, beating the EUR11.6 billion taken in by equities funds.
 
The recently formed Multi Asset & Solutions team, under the leadership of Christian Hille, now acts as a link between DWS’ Active Asset Management, its ETF and Alternatives businesses. The team operates globally, serves all client segments and uses the entire spectrum of asset classes to meet clients’ investment objectives – including bespoke solutions.
 
Kos will join DWS at the beginning of 2019. In 2012, Kos appeared on the Financial News list of 40 under 40 Rising Stars in Asset Management. Kos is a CFA Charter Holder, studied in Basel and at Cass Business School, where he also received his doctorate.
