"We are very pleased that we further extended our fee-generating assets in the second quarter, despite extremely difficult market conditions. What is particularly positive is the fact that in our core Asset Management segment we grew organically against the trend. This shows the distribution clout of our company," commented C-QUADRAT Board of Management member and company founder, Alexander Schütz the pleasing result.
