Meet our team

We have grown over the years, bringing in people with complementary expertise, while keeping our entrepreneurial mindset and a culture of openness and collaboration at the heart of everything we do. View all of our team.

Wolfgang Seybold

Managing Director

Wolfgang has a banking background. But at a young age, he started his own business - corporate communication – and recognized that his early experiences as a stock market investor, mainly in junior mining companies, is a unique selling proposition for him, when it comes down to finding the right companies for his investor community. Being a promoter and an investment banker all wrapped up in one mind, he has always been a competent advisor in the field of corporate communication and corporate finance.

Wolfgang’s passion for sports, such as skiing, hiking, golfing and sailing gives him the needed work-life balance in a fast changing financial world. He has been teaching his family about buying physical precious metals and mining stocks since they were young. As they love traveling, the Seybolds have already visited several mining operations as a family.

Simone Seybold

Office & Event Manager

Simone has a banking background as well, but found her talents in organizing events and corporate procedures while she was focusing on her own business – being the family manager. Since 2015, Simone has been responsible for the group’s back office management and organizing events, such as in-person conferences, traveling and roadshows.

Simone’s favorite travel destinations are the Mediterranean Sea, as well as the Middle East. She likes the warmer climate zones when it comes to vacation, but when Wolfgang started his own business in 1996, traveling to New York, Toronto and Vancouver was also on her agenda. Not many women have attended the biggest mining convention in the world. Simone has attended the PDAC in Toronto and Cambridge House in Vancouver.

Helena Sator

Social Media Manager

Helena discovered her passion for creative, visual and communicative projects early on. Social media and the digital world offer her a wide range of opportunities. The skills she learned in her two degree programs in marketing and business management (bachelor's and master's degrees) often serves her well. Media and digitalization are in a constant state of flux - so standing still is not an option for Helena, and a constant learning process always offers new potential. The early step into self-responsibility has also clearly brought the topic of finance into focus for her.

One of Helena's personal wishes: to create inspiring ideas herself and also to bring exciting projects from interesting people into the world. Her love of animals and nature is the perfect balance to the world of digital work.

Ilka Groenewold

Interviewer & Moderator

Ilka started hosting German music TV shows in her teens. The trained journalist turned this talent into her profession. Since then, she has grown into an all-round artist and has an extremely wide range of experience with over 5,500 event moderations. She brings her professional way of moderating to the axinocapital communication platforms. The axinocapital clients benefit from Ilka's passion for investments and the precious metals sector, as she is able to bring complex issues to a broad investor audience in an coherent way.

Ilka's motto in life is "exercise instead of burnout". Running has been an integral part of Ilka's life for years. The highlight of her sporting passion so far was her participation in the IRONMAN in Hamburg in 2018.

Nico Serapins

Interviewer & Social Media

Nico is what you would call the definition of a media manager and spokesperson. At the age of 16, he started his own YouTube channel that later became a successful business with millions of views. Nico started his first investments during the beginning of the Corona crisis and has been eager to enter other financial markets ever since. He has a talent for making complex interrelationships easy to understand. The combination of being a media producer and an investor, gives him the chance to communicate our knowledge to a broad investor community.

Nico likes efficient work using the Pareto principle. When Nico is on outdoor adventures, he often gets new business ideas or concepts that he makes happen immediately.

Michael Schertler

Communications Manager

Michael has a banking background with more than 30 years of experience in this sector. Working locations such as Munich, Zurich and Luxembourg has not only given him an international insight of our European financial system, but also on various equity markets. In 2016 he joined the axinocapital team and is responsible for our client relationship management. His tasks include the content management of the daily news flow we produce through the representation of our clients in the German speaking investor communities. Feeding all of our distribution channels, including our investor portal and our social media platforms is an important mechanism to get the companies known.

Michael is definitely an outdoor person who also likes standing in a river searching for gold nuggets by using his own washing pan. His personal interests are travelling, hiking, beekeeping, fly fishing and geology.

Dr. Eva Reuter

Webinar Specialist

After the completion of her degree in business administration, Eva worked for the German Stock Exchange for several years, before moving on to various PR/IR agencies. She has experience with public and private companies from Australia, Canada, Germany and Switzerland in all aspects of financial communication. Her focus has been the technology and mining sector. Within the axinocapital team, Eva is responsible for webinars, bringing our investor communities directly in contact with our clients.

The global challenges to achieve our climate goals are a major concern for Eva. Therefore, she believes that a personal e-bike, an electric car or a photovoltaic system on the roof is a first step in the right direction.

Bernd Heim

Chief Editor

Bernd bought his first stocks in 1985. When the market crashed in 1987, the student’s pockets were still too flat for a big shopping tour, but there was no doubt, that this was an ideal buying opportunity. During the 1990’s, while employed as the marketing manager of a company which advised retail investors in financial affairs and working on his PhD in modern German history at the same time, he steadily improved his strategy.

So, in 1998, when everyone was keen on internet stocks, he looked for Asian companies. A year later he bought Russian oil producers and in 2000 he finally bought his first gold miner. Since then, stocks have only been a hobby, but soon it turned professional, when he began to write newsletters for retail investors. You will find his name on books and scientific articles as well and may ask now, if there is any consistency. Well, yes there is: He still gets alerted, when there is blood on Wall Street – especially in the commodity sector.

Franz Heinritzi

Geologist & Translator

After graduating at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Geology, Franz worked at McGill University in Montréal, Canada on several exploration projects including REE (Rare Earth Element) in Québec. He returned to Germany to work in the quality control department of a company producing analytical instruments used in the metal and chemical industries. For the last 30 years, Franz has lived in Canada working as a translator for the mining and technologies sectors where his geological and analytical background is a significant asset.

Franz enjoys the Canadian wilderness year-round, and through family camping trips, has been able to explore Canada from Vancouver to Newfoundland. However, during the summer months, he can often be found in his garden. He also loves to cook, especially if most of the ingredients were grown in his own garden.
