In today's meeting, the Supervisory Board of Telefónica Deutschland resolved upon the further appointment of Markus Haas as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) until 31 December 2022 and agreed with him to extend his contract accordingly.

Markus Haas has been CEO of Telefónica Deutschland since January 2017. The fully qualified lawyer has held different management roles in the company since 1998.

In addition, under his tenure Telefónica Deutschland has successfully completed the consolidation of the two mobile networks.

Telefónica Deutschland aims to become the Mobile Customer & Digital Champion in Germany by gradually becoming simpler, faster and better for its customers. The transformation programme Digital4Growth, which focuses on customer needs in the digital age, is expected to deliver a gross OIBDA contribution of EUR 600 million between 2019 and 2022 by capturing additional revenue opportunities and by realising further efficiency gains.

Fonds Research 2019: S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond bietet attraktive Investitionschance

Auch 2019 hat die GBC AG unter der Vielzahl an Publikumsfonds neun „Fonds Champions“ herausgefiltert. Darunter auch den S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond (ISIN: LU1138637738), der eine gute Anlagechance anbietet mit einer Strategie, die kaum reproduzierbar ist. Insbesondere vor dem Hintergrund des anhaltenden Niedrigzinsniveaus sehen wir den Anleihefonds als äußerst attraktive Investitionschance, um nachhaltige und volatilitätsarme Renditen zu erzielen. Wir haben den S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond mit 4 von 5 Falken eingestuft.
