Like Andreas GRUBER before him, he will also serve as Managing Director and global Co-Lead of AIM alongside Claus STICKLER, who remains responsible for all investment platforms and management functions.

Fabiana ROSSARO will become the new CIO and a member of the executive team at ALLIANZ Spa Italy, as well as a member of the Investment Management Board at AIM. After obtaining degrees in economics and business studies in Italy and Germany, she worked at the universities of Freiberg and Bayreuth, where she also gained a doctorate.
