LUXEMBOURG – Allianz Dresdner Asset Management Luxembourg’s new chief operating officer is Jean-Christoph Arntz.

Arntz replaces Wilhelm Heischmann who retired from the position at the end of June. Heischmann was a managing director in Luxembourg since the foundation of ADAM Luxembourg fifteen years ago, when it was called Dresdnerbank Asset Management.

Prior to becoming chief operating officer at ADAM Lux, Arntz was chief financial officer at Deutscher Investment Trust. There he has been replaced by Wolfgang Puetz, also from within the Dresdner organisation.

The ADAM Lux group has around 14 billion euros in funds under management. The Luxembourg office employs 60 investment professionals.
