NORD Holding is a recognized leader in this segment. For our fast growing Fund Investment business, we are recruiting an Investment Analyst.

NORD HOLDING FUND INVESTMENTS:

We are looking to expand our team with an Investment Analyst to join our office in Germany and to be part of our continuing growth story in the Fund of Funds business. With assets under management of more than €1.5bn, we are one of the leading small-cap investors in Europe with an excellent track record that we have built over the last 50 years.
