About Us

We are a boutique financial advisory firm based in Switzerland. Our approach is centred on the combination of our extensive knowledge with the flexibility offered by our small size and lack of bureaucratic constraints, in order to offer tailored advice to our client. The underlying philosophy is therefore focussed on pragmatism: we don’t aim at selling standard products, but at offering solutions and solving problems.

Whether you are interested in improving the return of your investments, in mitigating financial risk, in turnaround and restructuring solutions, for us you are first and foremost an individual client with specific and unique aims and needs. No two issues are the same and as such no two solutions can be the same – with us you can rest assured that you will have a partner who will walk the extra mile to understand and solve your own unique issues.
