German-speaking countries are the focus of a new European event-driven firm led by experienced former managers at Amber Capital and Laxey Partners that will shortly launch its debut fund with expected assets of at least €200 million.

Bernd Ondruch and Christian Vogel-Claussen, German nationals who first worked together at Morgan Stanley nine years ago and have specialised in corporate finance, capital markets and hedge fund investing in German-speaking Europe throughout their careers, have joined forces to form London-based Astellon Capital Partners – which will launch on 1 October.
