We are an international investment company. Our goal is to manage wealth in a sustainable, meaningful manner.

We are a young, dynamic team of experts, nurturing a portfolio of ventures, properties, real assets and securities. We are proprietor-managed, invest our own wealth and seek to make a positive contribution to society through our investments.


We owe our entrepreneurial approach and strong forward-looking orientation to the fact that we ourselves came into existence thanks to the vision of a successful entrepreneur.
