Michael Duarte

Sales Director, German branch
Joined Clartan Associés in 2018

After graduating in Business Administration at the University of Cologne with special emphasis on investments, I acquired sales experience working at Tecis AG in several positions. In my last position, I was Investment Coach for over 700 financial advisors: I was in charge of technical and sales training in the Western region of Germany. I was in touch with asset managers on a regular basis, which is how I met Clartan Associés in 2012, and grew familiar with the philosophy and investment style of the firm over the years.

I am a lecturer on “investments and financing” at the European University of Applied Sciences in Brühl, and am an examiner at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Cologne.

I joined Clartan Associés in early 2018, to support the German Sales Team. Due to the team size, we all share in responsibilities and competences. I enjoy the ensuing diversity. From the outset, I was particularly attracted by the company’s genuine collegiality, its unique investment style, the flat hierarchy and the family spirit. Tradition of an owner-managed company can go hand in hand with the entrepreneurial mindset of a start-up.
