For our clients.
We manage the assets of entrepreneurs, high-net-worth families and individuals and count pension funds, foundations, family offices, companies, other asset managers and private banks among our institutional investors. Our clients’ investment goals range from wealth preservation and income generation to capital gains, and are pursued in the context of relative as well as absolute returns.
Investment goals are reflected correspondingly in our clients’ portfolios. We deliver customized investment objectives by means of personalized portfolios.
Our value added.
We focus on the two most critical aspects of the investment decision process: The asset allocation and the stock selection. For most investors these two investment decisions determine the overall portfolio performance to a large extend. The asset allocation decision entails not only the top-level division of the portfolio capital across asset classes, but also the selection of bond segments and of equity regions and sectors.
Asset allocation and stock selection are our main fields of expertise: In these areas we want to be among the very best in the market.
For all our strategies, we apply a structured and highly disciplined investment process. Successful investment decisions require the consideration of a large number of relevant data items. In order to process this information in an efficient and effective way, we employ cutting-edge financial models which have been developed in-house over a period of two decades.
Dynamic Core Strategies («Dynamic Swiss Core» and «Dynamic Global Core»). Dynamic Core strategies strive to deliver equity-like returns in “good weather” conditions and bond-like returns in “stormy” phases. These are the investment strategies to choose if your goal is asset preservation and capital gains.
For the awards of these strategies, see Lakefield Partners in Bilanz 2016 and Lakefield Partners in Bilanz 2017.

This strategy received the award for the best investment strategy for the period 2014 to 2016 from business magazine «BILANZ» (see also Lakefield Partners in Bilanz 2017 and Lakefield Partners in Bilanz 2018)
Dynamic Equity Strategies in Large Caps («Swiss Large Cap Equity» und «Dynamic World Equity»). Our Dynamic Equity Strategies invest in the stock of large corporations, so-called “large-caps”, and are designed to focus on cyclical industries in periods where the “weather forecast” is good, and in defensive industries, when the “weather forecast” looks less favorable. This is the investment strategy to choose if your goal is to achieve capital gains by investing in sustainable “blue chips”.
Equity Strategy with partial hedging («Swiss Equity Risk Controlled»). This strategy invests in Swiss Large Caps and is partially or fully hedged when the investment outlook is strongly clouded. This should help to reduce large draw-downs in equity market performance. This is the right investment strategy if you wish to achieve equity returns with reduced volatility.
