Invest in future unicorns

Our conservative investment approach to private equity has proven itself over several market cycles and produced successful results.

Off-market investments in the future

Private equity investments offer attractive return opportunities to employee benefits institutions with a long-term horizon. Asset classes such as private equity play an increasingly important role in portfolios. Our private equity programme is exclusively geared toward Swiss employee benefits institutions.   

Good to know

  • Private equity refers to investments in companies that are not traded on the stock markets. 

  • Instead of daily price movements, and hence value fluctuations, such investments are valued regularly on the basis of objective business management criteria. 

  • The track record of higher average returns than stock market investments combined with lower volatility guarantee an excellent risk-return profile in the portfolio. 

  • While investments in the start-up phase are associated with higher risks than investments in established companies, they also offer higher return opportunities.
