Hamburg-based alternative investment fund manager (AIFM) Intreal has created a new treasury department and hired Uwe Janz as head of Treasury.
The new division pools the areas of financing, banking and liquidity management, which were previously based in different departments.
Janz has more than 30 years of experience in trading, capital markets and treasury at banks and AIFMs, and joins from fund provider KanAm Grund, where he worked for 11 years. Before KanAm, he spent eight years as head of foreign exchange trading and interest rate derivatives at MM Warburg & Co.
Michael Schneider, managing director of Intreal, said: 'Intreal has grown substantially in recent years. To handle this growth, we must also adjust our internal company structures accordingly.
'With his extensive experience, Uwe Janz is the right expert to head up our Treasury department. So I am delighted that we have been able to gain him as a colleague.'
Janz added: 'The Hamburg-based third-party AIFM is a dynamic and fast-growing company. I am looking forward to applying my many years of experience at banks and fund companies.'
Janz began his career at banks including Société Générale, Merck-Fink & Co and Hamburgische Landesbank.
