Asset management that meets your challenges

Charitable foundations and NPOs face numerous challenges in defining and implementing their investment strategy, taking into account statutory requirements, risk management, income targets and, in particular, reputational risks. We can help you achieve these goals in a variety of ways:

  • Customised asset management
    We work with you to help determine your foundation’s asset management approach, defining the objectives and risk taking capacity. We work with you to create an optimal investment strategy, implementing it in a cost-effective way.
  • Ethical and sustainable asset management
    Charitable foundations and NPOs attach importance to both ethical-sustainable investing and income-oriented goals. Our approach successfully combines these two objectives. Allowing easy reconciliation of investment success with high ethical standards.
  • Capital preservation, income protection and systematic risk management
    Are you aiming to preserve the foundation’s assets in the long term and at the same time fulfill your purposes solely from the income generated? Our asset management solutions seek to pursue a secure and profitable investment of the foundation’s assets that also ensures regular and predictable distributions.
  • Integrated reporting for transparency and time saving
    Regular, transparent and comprehensive reporting keeps you up-to-date and well informed of the performance of your assets.

Rest assured we not only manage your foundation assets with the utmost care, but also provide you with the most appropriate and necessary advice and support you need to achieve your goals.

We look forward to hearing from you.
