GAMAX consolidates distribution in cooperation with max.xs financial services

GAMAX Management AG is restructuring the distribution of its fund products. As of 1st June 2011, the Munich based company will cooperate with the independent, full service provider max.xs financial services AG from Frankfurt. "In max.xs, we have found a cooperative partner who will enable us to offer even more efficient and extensive support for institutional investors and intermediaries in the future", explains Dr. Peter Fischer, member of the executive board of GAMAX Management AG. max.ms will assume marketing and sales support for the GAMAX funds products exclusively for Germany and Austria.

From 1st June 2011, the sales specialist max.ms financial services AG will strengthen GAMAX Management AG distribution. "Task sharing is part of our company's philosophy. We strive to find the best possible solution for every area of our funds business," says Dr. Peter Fischer, member of the executive board of GAMAX Management AG. While GAMAX assumes the conceptual design and processing, DJE Kapital AG, one of the most successful funds managers in the German-speaking area of Europe, is responsible for the asset management of the GAMAX funds. max.xs will be responsible for marketing and sales support as a specialist. Its area of responsibility include gaining new customers in the institutional area such as banks, broker pools, independent sales organisations and holding fund managers. Furthermore, max.xs will support existing customers in Germany and Austria.

max.xs: GAMAX Funds add to the product portfolio

Frank Alexander de Boer, President of the executive board of max.xs financial services AG, sees GAMAX's product portfolio an enhancement to their existing offering in particular the concept of linking current and global investment themes with active investment management. De Boer gives the examples of the GAMAX Fund Junior (ISIN: LU0073103748) and the GAMAX Maxi Fund Asia International (ISIN: LU0039296719). "We are seeing increasing demand for funds solutions which confront the task of relieving investors and intermediaries from difficult investment decisions. This includes, for example, the decision whether to fully invest in particular market phases or to maintain a higher allocation to cash," explains de Boer. "For capital investors who want to invest in Asian growth markets, who want to invest beyond the scope of their equity investment but do not want to constantly worry about this themselves, the GAMAX Asian fund is an excellent, actively managed investment solution," says de Boer, referring to one of the GAMAX fund products.

Conviction with products and service

The concept of GAMAX funds follows the long-term, equity oriented investment philosophy of the parent company Mediolanum Banking Group. The customer receives a capital investment product which is designed for long-term funds development in every respect. Here the systematic diversification of funds is crucial to be able to exploit opportunities in the international financial markets with low risks. During the last financial crisis, this investment approach which is described as "low volatility equity" ensured a far higher than average performance by GAMAX funds. "By cooperating with max.xs, the GAMAX team is now set up to provide investors and intermediaries not only well designed and superbly managed funds products but also excellent support for marketing and sales," says Fischer.
