Luxembourg/Berlin, 21 September 2022 . Following its establishment in July 2022 and several virtual meetings, the Aggregate Holdings advisory board - comprising Michael Cohrs (Chairman), Luciano Gabriel and Peter Solmssen - completed its initial in-person meeting.

“Considering the tremendous speed of change in geopolitics, society and the marketplace, the quality of corporate leadership and decision-making has never been more important. The future belongs to those who take a long-term view, and who can move fast, and combine superior understanding of financial data with solid risk management”, said advisory board chairman Michael Cohrs.
