Christian Paterok, CFA

Portfolio Manager and Equity / Credit Analyst
Born in Germany

I joined Noesis in 2003 as an intern in Portfolio Management and after graduating in 2004, started full time in Research focusing initially on the Financial and Consumer sectors. I expanded my coverage to credit research in 2010 and over time added more equity industries. Starting 2014 my responsibility in Portfolio Management increased, particularly for fixed income, also managing more client assets, and co-writing our client publications. I appreciate the open, self-determined culture at Noesis, its international team originating from the Americas, Asia, and Europe as well as the disciplined investment philosophy. Coming from Germany, the Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) model was new to me and it was convincing to see how it aligns client and firm interests to form a true partnership.
