Empira opens office in Frankfurt and moves into larger premises in Zug

- Office in Frankfurt since April
Zug (Switzerland) / Frankfurt am Main, 23 April 2018 – Empira AG, a leading investment manager domiciled in Zug, Switzerland, is to relocate its head office into larger premises within downtown Zug, in all probability at the end of May. In addition, the company has been represented with an office in Frankfurt am Main since April of this year so as to further expand its institutional business. The site is headed by Christian Hanke, Managing Director of Empira Investment Solutions GmbH.
The new head office in Zug will, just like the old premises, be located within walking distance of the central station. “The relocation is a pleasing indication of the success of our business model. Our company has grown to twice its size in the past year, with additional staff expected to join us in the coming months. Our old head office had reached the limits of its capacity,” explains Lahcen Knapp, CEO of Empira AG.
The new Frankfurt office is sited in an established business location on the southern edge of Frankfurt’s West End district, in the immediate vicinity of the central banking district and the city centre. The opening of the office is taking place in the framework of the company’s growth strategy; it is intended to establish an independent team at the new site to service institutional investors, with additional asset management capacities also planned. “Frankfurt is the most important financial centre in continental Europe and many of our clients are based there. Thus it makes sense to offer personal consulting and services from a local base,” says Christian Hanke.
The head of the new office of Empira AG has been with the company since July 2017. He looks back on many years of experience in sales and marketing for institutional clients. “Christian Hanke is a proven expert with an excellent network. Under his management the development and expansion of our new office will successfully move forward,” says Lahcen Knapp, CEO of Empira AG.
