Martin Wiesman former Vice Chairman Investment Banking Europe and Head of Germany at J.P. Morgan, joins Berlin Global Advisors (BGA) as a Senior Partner. He will co-lead the geopolitical business and investment advisory practice with BGA founder Jan Kallmorgen.
In addition to his expertise as a long-standing investment banker, Wiesmann is a proven geoeconomics expert and, among other things, a senior associate fellow for geoeconomics at the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP). He is also co-founder and program director of the think tank R21.
“I am very excited to join a dynamic, fast-growing firm like BGA as a Senior Partner,” says Martin Wiesmann. “The firm successfully serves the rapidly growing demand of international companies for geopolitical advice on strategic decisions, M&A transactions or risk management. In addition to Berlin and Frankfurt, we will also strengthen our presence in London, Brussels and Paris.”
Jan Kallmorgen: “We are proud to attract such a high-caliber and experienced leader as Martin Wiesmann as a partner. He ideally complements our team and BGA’s interdisciplinary approach. Our clients will benefit greatly from his geo-economic and capital market expertise. This also applies to our Government Affairs business, which our Managing Partner Ralf Welt will expand internationally.“
