Wealth management industry is now facing major challenges.

Increasing regulation drives business costs up. Income levels on reasonably ’safe’ investments stay very low. At the same time, volatile asset classes have only increased their volatility post-2008. Higher returns are coming at a higher risk now — this is a major challenge of the post-crisis years.

ALPENFORT is traditionally more involved in volatile and unconventional asset classes than in the classic capital preservation strategies.

Our specialty is active management of direct investments into industries, businesses and even situations where we or our investment partners have particular first-hand expertise.

Our traditionally strong legal support helps to minimize non-business risks in investments, and we always try to syndicate regional-specific investments with financially sound local players of good standing.
