Our Asset Management Services
Often, investors with a significant amount of assets need an extra pair of eyes to look at their portfolio’s performance. Others need hands-on help growing and protecting their wealth. Alpen Partners offers asset management services to our clients looking to grow their assets, create a balanced portfolio, and achieve their long and short-term goals. These services include portfolio management and personal financial planning. Every investor’s planning journey is different, and it’s essential to recognize that not all plans will apply to everyone. This is why Alpen Partners offers a wide range of services. We do not want to take over your investment decisions. Instead, we want to work with you and create an investment management strategy that works best for you. Here is a snapshot of some of the asset management services we offer.
Seek financial success with a full range of hands-on asset management services specifically designed to fit your needs. We provide our clients with a solution catered to their specific needs while considering their expected returns, risk tolerance, future liquidity requirements, and potential tax and legal restrictions. If our clients are unaware of their risk tolerance, a risk profile is selected to best suit their objectives. We select an asset allocation that keeps track of variables like the liquidity of the investment vehicles and the diversification in terms of regions, sectors, and currencies. Further, Alpen Partners does not offer in-house investments. Instead, assets and investment vehicles are selected from some of the world’s leading banks and financial institutions. Our team seeks out the best mutual funds, ETFs, and hedge funds on the market today.
Alpen Partners also offers managed accounts, which are accounts on which we have full discretion to manage the assets according to a pre-agreed risk profile. Clients with managed accounts delegate the day-to-day investment decisions to Alpen Partners. Clients with a managed account are usually professionals of business who prefer not to be involved in the tedious investment decision process and believe in the long-term risk-adjusted returns we have been able to achieve. Our team completes a thorough analysis of our high-earning clients’ financial situation, including assessing the risk profile and personal circumstances. Alpen Partners will set up an individually structured investment portfolio consistent with our clients’ expected return and risk tolerance.
Our advisory accounts allow the account holder to have a direct hand in trading decisions and make all the final decisions. Still, we also believe the journey through financial planning and investment shouldn’t be made alone. With an advisory account, our team is here to receive and execute the client’s requested trades and get the best prices possible. Our experts help our clients achieve their goals while allowing the client to make the final decisions. We can also make recommendations on what to purchase based on current trends and the account holder’s goals, but we cannot complete the sale without consent from the holder. Clients who have advisory accounts with Alpen Partners are typically economic professionals with significant market experience who are interested in benefiting from Alpen Partners’ extensive knowledge of the market and network but wish to keep complete control of the investment decisions.
Another type of advising our team does is FX advising. FX, forex, or foreign exchange, accounts are for investors seeking to buy and sell all major global currencies. The FX market grants companies the ability to easily move money across borders with little foreign exchange risk with maximum returns. Our clients will use forex advisory to purchase high-performing currencies like the US dollar, Swiss franc, and Chinese yuan and trade them at calculated times for financial gain.
The forex market can be tricky, so even skilled inventors utilize FX advisory services. Like an advisory account, clients make the final investment decisions themselves. Our team handles spot transactions, forward transactions, FX swaps, futures, options, and structured products in all leading currencies. Depending on the custodian bank that our clients choose, we can also offer advice on and execution of FX transactions in some emerging markets. The type of clients who holes a forex advisory account is usually finance professionals who are looking for the safety of a top-rated Swiss custodian bank with the professional advice of our FX specialists and best-in-class execution of our partner banks.
