Hedge Fund Awards 2016

Hedge Fund Awards 2016 97 ~ Swiss Multi-Family Office of the Year & Best European FoF Portfolio Manager 2016 Portas Capital AG are multi-family office and independent wealth manager with domiciles in Zurich, Switzerland. We speak to Beat Kunz about the firm’s approach to investing and how they always put their client’s first. Portas Capital AG invest in hedge funds and construct portfolios only through managed accounts. With the help of portfolio simulations as well as a top-down view by us and the bottom-up risk/return expectation of our client, we tailor-made the various hedge fund portfolios. Additionally, we apply quantitative tools to manage/ reduce the risk of the portfolio. In order to stay ahead in our fast paced and dynamic industry, we utilise our database to analyse the history of many managers and their skills even if their funds had to be shut down. The other side of our business involves new managers approaching us. As we invest in people and their strat- egies we are supported by a professional profiler to get an impression about the manager’s capabilities. Ultimately, our strategy to stay at the top of our industry and set ourselves apart from our competitors is to offer tailor-made the portfolios according to client expectations, risk tolerance as well as to any constraints. For example, looking though the various funds we provide a summary of exposures to asset classes, equity sectors, FX, Commodities, fixed income markets as far it is possible. This approach to clients relies on them having a knowledge of hedge funds, and we only engage with investors who have experience in the industry. We take a similar approach when hiring new staff, looking for specialist employees with skills which differ from those we already have in the company, as we know from experience that a diversified group of staff will be able to provide our clients with a wider variety of services. Moving forward, the company intends to expand in Europe step-by-step. This will necessitate our team grow- ing, and as this occurs we intend to improve our investment process further so as to increase the support we provide to our clients. Company: Portas Capital Ltd.
