Altrafin was founded in 2001. At inception the former employer of the founding partners i.e. the family investment office of a globally active German entrepreneur, was the company’s core client. The company has successfully developed and significantly expanded its client base since and especially from 2008 onwards.
Altrafin has been licensed by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) to manage collective investment schemes since 2008. Initially under the Collective Investment Schemes Act (CISA) and currently also as a manager of collective investment schemes under Article 24 of the Financial Institutions Act (FinIA).
Between 2020 and 2022, the group companies were consolidated into one entity and now operate as Altrafin AG (Altrafin Ltd.). We offer individual asset management mandates and also act as an investment manager for collective investment schemes (investment funds).
In 2023, Banca dello Stato del Cantone Ticino (BancaStato), Bellinzona, Switzerland, has entered a strategic partnership with Altrafin by acquiring a minority stake in the capital of the Company.
