Equity management

Benefit from the global exchange of ideas

The equity team of Erste Asset Management has developed a focused range of equity strategies. Our equity team combines cross-market research with the know-how of our local emerging Europe equity specialists. The satellite strategies developed and managed by our team are at our institutional clients’ disposal in form of mutual funds, special mandates, or individual investment solution.

"This integrated approach contributes to our ability to offer our clients attractive equity strategies.”

Stepan Mikolasek, Head of Equity

Our approach

In 2015 our equity management team restructured. It now contains specialists for industrialised and emerging equities. The investment process in equity management is more strongly focused on fundamental research.

  • Integration of equity specialists from industrialised and emerging economies
  • Combination of quantitative and qualitative models and active title selection

Our strengths

Our equity management team cooperates across borders. The know-how of 19 experts from six countries is incorporated in the process regardless of where they are based. This integrated team approach contributes to the development of our active equity selection process and enables us to offer our clients attractive investment solutions.

  • Cross-border, integrated team
  • Local presence in the region
  • Focused range of products

Our range of products and services

In equity management the investment specialists focus on individual markets and sectors. Among the selected satellite strategies are:

  • Biotechnology
  • Emerging Europe


The ERSTE STOCK BIOTEC fund invests in the most important biotech companies, primarily those in the USA. Equities from the Pacific region and Europe play a minor role, but are also selectively added to the fund. The currencies are not hedged against the euro. The fund is particularly suitable as an addition to an existing equity portfolio and is geared towards achieving long-term capital appreciation.
