Our management team consists of specialized fund managers focusing solely on one particular investment product or concept. Long standing experience, specialization as well as a proven quantiative filter rather than a large team of fund managers are they keys for success.
Our investment funds are co-managed by Baader Bank, Berenberg Bank, Kreissparkasse Köln, Ampega Investment and Universal Investment. These banks operate as additional portfolio management and provide trading, risk management and reporting functionalities.
What are the advantages of this management structure?
- Common practice: advisory structures offer maximum flexibility in cooperation with various managing companies and custodians and are more focused
- Qualification: long-standing "Track Record" in managing dedicated investment concepts
- Authorization: BaFin regulated (section 32 & section 2 para. 10 German Banking Act), BN & Partners Capital AG
- Specialisation: one investment concept instead of broad product range
- Industrialisation: no large fund manager teams due to investment focus rather than benchmark approach, use of proven quant screening
- No conflict of interest: managers are co-investors in the fund concept
- Clear resonsibilities: short decision making processes rather than excessive meeting culture
