Get to know the framework of our investment advisory

Our advisory model is based upon the Portfolio Theory, a theory on how risk-averse investors can construct portfolios to optimize or maximize expected return based on a given level of market risk.

Prior to giving proper advise, we need to get to know our client. An investment advisory is always based on what our client tells about his/her financial situation, general needs, and views on expected return and risk as well as investment interests.

Our advisory philosophy is based on Portfolio Theory, a scientifically based theory of how to allocate capital between asset classes (allocation) and spread the risks in these (diversification) in the best way possible. The strategic direction and long-term way of thinking lay down the foundation for a portfolio’s development over time. When we talk about the strategy, we refer to the strategic allocation, i.e. the long-term allocation between asset classes – equities, long-term rates, short-term rates – that constitutes a saving portfolio.

That an investor has a fair risk in his/her investment portfolio and understands what it means to take risk is also – and especially – important considering the concerns regarding the financial markets during the past years

How we advise our clients

An analysis of needs intends to develop a comprehensive picture of the client’s situation regarding his savings. It includes economic situation, saving needs, expectation of return, risk tolerance, investment period, existing savings portfolio, and interest/activity.
