Kames seeks to boost German business with new hire


Kames Capital has appointed Martin Weiss as business development manager to develop its client base in Germany.

Joining from Pioneer Investments where he was a client and sales relationship manager responsible for German, Austrian and Italian clients and prospects, Weiss joins Kames’ European wholesale distribution team.

In his new role, Weiss, a native German speaker, will cover accounts across Germany, including wealth managers, financial advisers, fund-of-funds, family offices, fund platforms and banks.

He will report to Richard Dixon, head of continental European wholesale at Kames.

Dixon says Weiss has a “solid contact base in Germany” and that his knowledge of the market will allow Kames to develop its client base in the country.

Prior to Pioneer Investments, Weiss held client relations roles at Legal & General Investment Management and Hermes Fund Managers.
