Moritz Sterzinger


As part of the Private Equity team here at Chatham, I mainly focus on advising financial sponsors and their portfolio companies on how to manage their risk associated with interest rates, FX and commodities. Most of my clients are located in the German-speaking regions, the Nordics and the Netherlands, where I also get involved in transactions from other sectors, such as property and infrastructure.

About Moritz

In addition to serving our existing clients, an important part of my role is to build the Chatham franchise in the geographies that I focus on.

Prior to joining Chatham in 2015, I was with BNP Paribas’s debt capital markets team working on bond issues, securitisations and capital transactions for DACH-based banks and insurance companies, covering German, Austrian and Swiss banks and insurance clients. 

Outside of work I like to spend my time surfing and snowboarding, which unfortunately does not happen too often, so instead you will find me playing basketball, football or the guitar.
