History

ALTRAFIN was founded in 2001.

During the launch phase, the company’s main client was the former employer of ALTRAFIN’s founding partners, a family investment office of a German entrepreneur with worldwide business interests.

The company has continued to develop successfully since 2001, expanding its client base significantly from 2009 onwards.

Since 2005, asset management for individual portfolio management mandates has been carried out through Altrafin AG, while the group’s fund-based asset management is conducted by Altrafin Advisory AG. There is no difference in the operations, staffing, location or investment philosophy of these entities.

Altrafin Advisory AG has been authorised and supervised by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) as an asset manager of collective capital investments (investment funds) in Switzerland since 2008.

As a result of increasing regulatory requirements, asset management and advisory mandates requiring clients to have a local connection to the European Single Market (EU) are being served by Altrafin Asset Management AG (previously Akragas AG), Triesen, Liechtenstein, since 2015.

Altrafin Asset Management AG has been authorised and supervised by the Financial Market Authority (FMA) as an asset manager in Liechtenstein (FL) in accordance with the FL Asset Management Act since 2013.

In 2015, the company entered into a strategic joint venture with a German family office via CONREN Research GmbH, Zurich. This enabled the company to offer a range of investment fund solutions tailored exclusively to that family and now also for external third parties in Germany.
