Our team is made up of experts in asset management and in information technology. The strong interconnection between financial markets and IT is one significant defining feature of QAP. We put a lot of effort into continuously recruiting and integrating top talent into our team.

Expertise

Within our company, we incorporate expertise on ETFs (European and US), funds (UCITS, mutual funds, hedge funds), alternative investments, and on non-liquid assets and vehicles. In information technology, our team members have skills in Java, Kafka, Docker, APIs, PHP, R, Excel (VBA), data bases (SQL, NoSQL, in-memory, kdb), IT infrastructure and related topics.

Innovation and interface competencies are two major aspects of our consulting services. Therefore, we cultivate interdisciplinary approaches. Our team makes use of best practices and insights from other fields. The desired combination of experience, intellectual curiosity, and motivation will remain a valuable part of our team culture.

Flat hierarchy, open communication and continuous education shape the start-up mentality of our team. At the same time, we incorporate the professionalism that is expected within the financial market sector.

Management

Managing partner and founder of the company is Christian Schuster.
