Zurich, July 2021 - The Swiss sustainable investment house responsAbility, which specializes in impact investments, has strengthened its sales team: Christian Zeitler is taking over in a newly created position as Head of Sales. Christian brings many years of experience in the international financial sector and is a proven distribution specialist with a broad track record. He reports to Stephanie Bilo, Chief Clients & Investment Solutions Officer, and member of the Executive Management.

The strategic expansion and strengthening of distribution comes in the wake of growing interest in impact investments from institutional investors, and builds on the track record of responsAbility, a leading global provider of impact investment solutions.

Christian Zeitler brings deep, long-standing and international expertise in building, shaping and developing sales activities for leading global asset managers. Most recently, as Managing Director, he was responsible for the Northern European business of a leading U.S. asset manager, while also managing distribution activities in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Scandinavia.

“Christian is a highly motivated individual with a true entrepreneurial spirit,” says Stephanie Bilo. “He has repeatedly and successfully built a broad European client base for global companies.”

Christian stated, “As a keen observer of finance and investments from the privileged vantage point of more traditional asset managers, I have come to the conclusion that sustainable investing is where finance can fulfil its mission to serve society. responsAbility is right at the center of this exciting development. I am proud to be joining this pioneering firm.”
