Christian Mayer

Operating Partner

Christian started his career in 1989 as an equity sales person for Girozentrale und Bank der Österreichischen Sparkassen AG, an Austrian investment bank. From 1992 until 1995 he was a board member of a private bank, being responsible for business development. In 1995 Christian teamed up with two of his colleagues from the investment bank to found SMN Investment Services, an Alternative Investment management firm, specialised in quantitative trading strategies.

From the start of SMN until 2014 Christian was on the management board of the company. In addition to his responsibilities for investor relations and operations he acted as the speaker of the management board. SMN was one of the first companies in Austria to become a licensed AIFM in 2014. During this transition Christian decided to shift his role and become an active strategic advisor to SMN’s management team contributing his experience and widespread relationships. Christian has been acting for several years as a board member of ÖSWB, an association of institutional investors in Austria.
