Ralf Walter

Ralf Walter was born in 1970 and attended the University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart where he studied Business Administration and Economics. Ralf has been a fund manager for over ten years and is a Chartered Financial Analyst. Since 2000, he has been with Cominvest Asset Management GmbH where he is fund manager and investment analyst, concentrating on European small and mid caps. He currently manages the Cominvest Adiselekt, Cominvest Fund NewTec and Cominvest Fund EuropeSelect funds.


The fund follows in core a market-neutral strategy on the German equity market and aims at superior risk-adjusted returns. It invests within a derivative framework, on the one hand, in selected equities mainly from Germany (long positions). On the other hand, it sells in accordance with its strategy stocks that it does not actually hold and whose prices are expected to fall (short positions). This bipolar strategy seeks to reduce market risks. Long and short positions will not always be of equal volume so deviations from the core goal of market neutrality may occur. The fund management company charges All-In-Fee displayed as management fee.
