GoldenTree Asset Management, a leading global asset management firm overseeing assets exceeding $53 billion, has appointed Markus Taubert as Principal, marking the establishment of GoldenTree's physical presence in Germany with a base in Munich. In his role, Mr. Taubert will concentrate on business development, fostering relationships throughout the DACH region. Reporting directly to Kathy Sutherland, Chief Executive Officer and Partner at GoldenTree, Taubert's appointment aligns with the firm's strategic expansion efforts.
Before joining GoldenTree, Mr. Taubert served as the Head of Germany and Austria at Muzinich, overseeing investor relationships in these regions. Prior to that, he held the position of Head of Institutional Client Business for Germany and Austria at BlackRock. Mr. Taubert holds a Master's in Business Administration from Universität Marburg.
Steve Tananbaum, Founder, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer at GoldenTree said “We have nearly a 20-
year presence in London, but we know physical proximity to our investors can bring increased collaboration and are
enthusiastic about our opportunities for growth in the DACH region. We are pleased to have Markus join given the depth of his experience in the region, and we are looking forward to him expanding our physical presence in continental Europe.”
Ms. Sutherland said that "Some of GoldenTree’s earliest investors were from Germany, and particularly in the last two
decades, we have been creating customized solutions for DACH investors as well as growing our presence in the region. Markus brings nearly 25 years of experience in the region, and we are excited to welcome him to the team. Attracting the best talent remains central to GoldenTree’s expansion, and Markus is well-positioned to drive important growth for GoldenTree from Europe.”
Mr. Taubert said, "The strength of GoldenTree’s multi-decade track record in delivering returns across public and private corporate credit, emerging market credit, and distressed and structured products, as well as the firm’s ability to create customized solutions in SMAs, will help institutional investors achieve their objectives in their growing allocation to credit. I am excited to help broaden GoldenTree’s footprint in the DACH region and to work closely with clients from our new office in Germany.”
