BAI General Assembly 2022

The Bundesverband Alternative Investments e.V., the central industry association of the alternative investments industry in Germany, looks back on a successful year 2021 and continues its growth trend. At the general meeting on March 31, 2022, the board and management were able to report on important impulses of the BAI association work in the areas of law, alternative markets and public relations, among others. The successful lobbying work is reflected by a new growth record in the number of members - 29 new member companies joined the BAI last year alone. Currently, the number of members amounts to 248.

On the occasion of the general meeting, chairman Achim Pütz, partner at Luther Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH, was confirmed in office with a large majority. The board members Britta Bene, Partner at Mainstay Human Capital Advisors, Matthias Erb, Partner at StepStone Global, Andreas Kalusche, CEO of Prime Capital AG, Bastian Schmedding, Managing Director at Intermediate Capital Group GmbH (ICG) and Prof. Dr. Rolf Tilmes, Academic Director at EBS Executive School were also confirmed in office.

Dr. Peter Brodehser, Head of Infrastructure, Talanx Group (Ampega Asset Management), was newly elected to the board of management. Rolf Dreiseidler, managing partner at POLARIS Investment Advisory AG, no longer stood for election at his own request. On behalf of BAI e.V., Achim Pütz thanked Mr. Dreiseidler for the extremely committed and productive cooperation over the past twelve years and wished him all the best for the future.

Achim Pütz commented on the election of the Executive Board as follows: "I am pleased that the members of the BAI once again expressed their confidence in the Board. In particular, we look forward to working with Dr. Brodehser, who has already been supporting the BAI Investor Advisory Board since last year."

Commenting on the association's work in the current fiscal year, in which the BAI celebrates its 25th anniversary, Mr. Pütz continued: " 2022 will again bring numerous challenges for the BAI. In addition to geopolitical and macroeconomic changes that the industry and investors will have to face, the sustainable and digital transformation, which will also be driven forward in a demanding regulatory manner, will clearly shape the association's further work. The same applies to the ongoing review of the AIFM Directive and the ELTIF Regulation, which provide the legal framework especially for the increasingly important private markets strategies and are now being significantly revised, including in the form of an EU-wide harmonized regulatory approach for credit funds."
