The new hire joins the firm from Allianz Global Investors.
Online wealth management firm Scalable Capital has appointed Thiemo Krink as chief investment officer. This is a newly-created role.
The new CIO joins from Allianz Global Investors, where he was the European head of portfolio risk and most recently worked as a portfolio manager for multi-asset, alternative and insurance strategies, the firm said in a statement.
