Aequitum Profile

Aequitum is the lighthouse, marking the safe course through the open seas of Wealth Management. It guides families and institutions voyage to a secure harbour.

Aequitum is an independent wealth management company authorized and regulated by the FINMA (Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority). “Independent” is the key word. Our autonomy guarantees of our impartiality; it allows us to work closely with our clients without any conflicts of interest. We are free to build long-lasting relationships with families and institutions – relationships based on trust, listening, and integrity.

Too often, the financial industry seems to thrive on complexity, jargon, and lack of transparency. At Aequitum, we aim to keep things simple, agreeing and pursuing a shared long-term strategy with our clients. By definition, this requires personal, custom service, a world away from the standardized products of traditional banking. It is an individual approach that combines the knowledge of a team of experienced professionals, the innovation of a young and active company, and the efficiency of digital solutions.

Families

"We don’t want to compete with technology, but to add the essential human component, the emotional understanding."

Aequitum provides the link between families and finance, translating human hopes and wishes into achievable goals. An open, constructive relationship, where logic mixes with empathy, gives our clients access to global yet low-cost investment opportunities. Our aim is to identify solutions that efficiently meet the exact needs of each family.

We bring together around Aequitum’s table the ambitions and expectations of our clients, the capacity of international financial institutions, and the expertise of professionals specializing in family estate planning. We strive to add value at every stage of a family’s long-term journey toward its shared objectives.

Family – centered

We take a family-centered approach, responding promptly and comprehensively to all client needs, concerns, and queries. We understand that investment management is only part of protecting family wealth.

Close to the world

Our founders’ experiences outside banking – in fund management, government, diplomacy, and NGOs – give us broad know-how and a deep understanding of the sources and dynamics of change.

Advisory

At Aequitum, we never dictate; we guide, pointing out the most appropriate path. We combine efficient, technology-driven financial management services with a sympathetic and responsive understanding of your overall strategy and objectives.

Institutions

"Institutions are not abstract entities, they are people who meet challenges with responsibility and passion. At Aequitum, we support them in their complex roles."

Institutions are not abstract entities, they are people: women and men working to better their communities, regions, and groups. People who meet challenges with responsibility and passion. At Aequitum, we support them in their complex roles by helping them to simplify, optimize, and enhance their investments.

Our investment committee draws on a rich technical and cultural background, representing four generations of professionals with deep and complementary expertise. They research the classical drivers of investment performance – objectives, costs, volatility – to assure institutions of the best opportunities for the long term.

Risk management

We constantly monitor investment risk on behalf of our clients through the most advanced and internationally recognized digital asset management platforms.

Cooperation

We maintain the closest collaboration between our investment committee and our client institutions' strategic committees to refine asset allocation and achieve short-term tactical decisions.

Independence

The financial advice that we offer is completely impartial and without any conflict of interest. We provide a clear long-term vision through experienced foresight and freedom of opinion.
