Daniel Kranson joined Vontobel Asset Management in July 2007 as a Senior Research Analyst, covering stocks globally. Although he is responsible for analyzing various sectors, he focuses largely on Consumer Staples, a core sector for all of Vontobel’s Quality Growth strategies. In 2013, he was promoted to deputy portfolio manager of the Vontobel European Equity Strategy, and in 2016, he became lead portfolio manager for the strategy, while also becoming deputy portfolio manager of the firm’s International Equity Strategy. In addition to his portfolio management duties, he continues to conduct research analysis on individual stocks that may be included in the firm’s other strategies.

Daniel began his investment career in 1999 on the sell side at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., where he analyzed companies based in the US and Europe in the technology space and later in the healthcare industry. In 2006, he switched to the buy side, working at Scout Capital Management, where he evaluated both healthcare and consumer companies in both developed and emerging markets.

Daniel Kranson received a Bachelor of Science in Operations Research from Columbia University.
