„The only investors who shouldn’t diversify are those who are right 100% of the time.“
John M. Templeton, investment fund founder
The basic idea of a fund is the combination of several excellent asset managers with controlling done by a Family Office, which is normally reserved only for investors with very large assets. The goal of a fund is to obtain adequate increases in value for its investors, taking into account investment risks. By diversifying via different advisors and investment styles, the investment success is consolidated and the overall risk in the investment portfolio is reduced.
Currently our fund management is advised by the experts of the BHF-Bank, Flossbach von Storch, and Rothschild Vermögensverwaltung. The individual segment advisors independently put together a portfolio within the context of the investment boundaries specified by the fund management. Each of these is a globally diversified, balanced portfolio, comprising mostly sectional title investments in the area of equities and bonds. Investment fund solutions must only be used for the systematic mapping of auxiliary markets and special investment topics up to a maximum of 10% of the fund assets. We exclude non-transparent, highly speculative, or very cost-intensive investment classes from the investment universe of the fund on purpose. The mandated segment advisors all get direct mandates – thus, the additional cost level of a fund of funds is eliminated. Equity investment has been limited by the fund management to a maximum of 50%.
Following careful selection and mandating of the segment advisors, the task of fund management is to perform detailed settlement control regarding fair market conditions. We also do uniform performance measurement and a thorough performance analysis of the individual asset managers as well as of the overall fund. The fund manager holds regular performance meetings with the mandated asset managers.
