We advise a Swiss and international client base in the financial and non-financial aspects of managing their wealth.
We stand for the values of excellence and professionalism, both of which are guaranteed by the independence of our business model.
Our value proposition
revolves around four pillars →
Our model is based not on a convergence of interests with our clients, but, rather, on total alignment with those interests. On top of our industry’s best practices, we impose on ourselves those practices that we deem essential to conducting our business. Our performances are audited by an independent body certified by FINMA, the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority.
Our approach to doing business is dedicated above all to generating returns but is also shaped by its flexibility and its efficiency. Our business model is geared to our clients directly, a model that is built not for them, but with them, with the goal of simplifying the financial aspects of their life equations.
Our business model is disruptive, uncompromising and consistent. This shows up in the more entrepreneurial approach that we take to our business and in the economies of scale that are generated from our long-standing experience and not from standardisation. Our model comes with a network of financial holdings to back our offering.
In addition to being an innovator in Switzerland, we invest for our clients in projects that adhere to a dynamic of change. We are positioned unequivocally in innovation. Our portfolios also reflect this dynamic of change by seeking out bold and high-performance opportunities.
Our investment universe covers all types of financial assets that are based on our clients’ choice of currencies. Our investment management is tax-efficient in both our choice of legal structures and in the investments that we select.
We act as a sparring partner by confronting your investment ideas as well as providing advice on asset allocation, single lines and investment vehicles.
In terms of investment advice, asset allocation is at the heart of the services we provide. We are convinced that developing and managing an overall asset allocation strategy is the source of creating long-term value.
After an exhaustive analysis of their assets and objectives, we work hand-in-hand with our clients to develop their overall wealth strategy. Our mission is to find the best suited solutions to their legal, tax and inheritance status.
A project of family governance is a human project, always complex, that needs to be built step-by-step over time. Its role and its manner of functioning are different from the governance of a business. We develop a personalised method to help each family build and organise a made-to-measure family governance.
A single-family office is an organisation put in place by very wealthy families. It is dedicated to exclusively managing a sole family’s estate. Building and running a single-family office requires numerous abilities and knowledge to successfully implement this family project. We help families create their own single-family office.
We represent the interests of our clients within the structures for which our expertise is sought. We support them in the strategic governance of their companies or in the acquisition of shareholdings.
We assist our family office clients in their wealth transmission challenges by providing an ecosystem that prepares the emerging generation for the challenges and responsibilities of holding a financial inheritance.
