Our past experience leading investment management for top tier banks gives us the network and the recognition. Our current set up at Perennium gives us the freedom of mind and action.

We start by listening. We invest the time needed to reach the required level of trust and mutual understanding without which we cannot succeed.

Investing is our passion. We think about the world and financial markets 24/7

Investing is not about knowing the future; it is about preparing a portfolio for a range of probabilistic outcomes.

We are fiercely independent. We never have and never will accept retrocessions or commissions from financial services providers.

In order to manage financial wealth, independence is much more important than size or scale. To the contrary, size can be detrimental.
