After school Schneider progressed to the University of Vienna to study business administration before completing his prodigious studies at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration. He joined Raiffeisen Zentralbank in 1996 as an analyst within the economics and fixed income research team before moving into his present position as a fund manager in 2001. He describes his stock selection style for both his funds as fundamentally top down.
