Bernhard Reisecker

Bernhard Reisecker, Asset Risk Management:

“I joined VIG in 2010 and I was involved in setting up the Asset Risk Management department. I had been part of the Group before that, working in asset risk management at s Versicherung. Our work here focuses mainly on capital market investments. We keep track of movements in the capital markets and analyse the resulting risks. VIG is just as diverse as my range of responsibilities. Diversity isn’t just a buzzword here, it’s part of our day-to-day operations. I like working in such a multicultural environment – in my ten-person team alone we have staff from Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Germany."  (c) Picture: Dialogschmiede
