Heinz Junkermann’s Strategy Diversify or Die

It’s one of the modern business world’s sayings: the ability to identify and invest in new opportunities and income sources is now viewed as essential to survival in crowded markets. The pandemic has accelerated this trend, with many organisations finding their traditional business models ripped from beneath their feet.

A Multidimensional Business Career

Heinz Junkermann was a businessman who was king of his time when it came to an understanding the importance of diversification.

Junkermann refused to limit his success to just two industries, instead looking to the jewellery industry to broaden his business interests. Junkermann’s company Schmuck-Kassette GmbH specialises in the production of jewellery cases. In an era when most people stayed in one profession their entire lives, Junkermann demonstrated a strong desire to be bold in business and seek out new opportunities where others were not.

41-year-old Nicole Junkermann was born on April 27, 1980, in Düsseldorf to German businessman Heinz Junkermann and his wife, Ingrid Junkermann. Unforeseen circumstances later disrupted Heinz’s life, and he died in June 2011 at 83, according to thrillng.com. He was the sole owner of a private banking firm he ran in Germany and Western Europe. Aside from that, he was involved in commercial interests outside of Germany, one of which was his role as a managing director for a real estate company, IFG Gesellschaft Immobilienvesit mbH.

Nicole’s exposure to the business world began when she was very young, accompanying her father Heinz to business meetings at the age of 12. As his Spanish translator, he was frequently required to respond quickly to business associates in a high-pressure environment. Nicole credits her father’s approach to her success in investment and entrepreneurship to this day. Junkermann’s inclusion of his daughter in his professional network in the early 1990s may have raised eyebrows among his high-net-worth clients. Still, she proved to be a critical component of his business’s growth. Nicole believes these years gave her an early glimpse into the fast-paced and dynamic business world she would later enter.

Heinz Junkermann – The Rise of His Era

Junkermann began his career as a banker in 1928, during West Germany’s Wirtschaftswunder (economic miracle) as it rose from the ashes of World War II devastation to become one of Europe’s most developed nations.

High-yielding investments became less common as fast-paced economic growth slowed in the 1950s. Junkermann noticed a growing demand for trusted financial advice among the upper classes. Rather than waiting for the industry to evolve, Heinz saw an opportunity to lead its evolution by establishing a private banking institution for high-net-worth individuals.

Junkermann had various other commercial interests throughout Germany, including serving as Managing Director of the real estate firm IFG Gesellschaft für Immobilienbesitz mbH. German house prices suffered greatly from the First World War to the interwar period and into the 1950s. However, prices rose at a nearly 4% annual rate between 1961 and the early 1980s, a period of solid growth in which Junkermann was prudent to invest.

Opportunity Hunter – Junkermann’s legacy

Junkermann’s success in this venture wasn’t enough to deter him from seeking opportunities in other industries to diversify his portfolio. Both World Wars had a significant impact on the German housing market. Junkermann recognised the market as a growth opportunity and moved into the real estate industry, eventually becoming managing director of the property company IFG Gesellschaft für Immobilienbesitz mbH. Junkermann predicted that house prices would rise at a 4% annual rate throughout the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.

Heinz Junkermann – A Philanthropist

This year 2022, marks the tenth anniversary of international entrepreneur Nicole Junkermann’s father Heinz’s death in his hometown of Dusseldorf at 83. Heinz Junkermann had various commercial interests across Germany, from establishing his private wealth institution to managing roles in the real estate and jewellery sectors. Unbeknownst to most, he supported several philanthropic initiatives outside of business, primarily in his hometown of Dusseldorf.

Junkermann was a committee member of the Prinzengarde Düsseldorf Blau-Weiss, Düsseldorf’s largest carnival society. The carnival was founded in the 1920s. That was shortly before Junkermann’s birth. It provided community relief and opportunities for celebration every year on November 11. In later years, the committee approved ‘Carnival Saturday,’ a day in collaboration with the Heartbreaker foundation to support the organisation Düsseldorf Aids. The carnival’s attendance increased during Heinz’s membership, and the event continues to collaborate with other charitable partners.
